 ANGEL TREE UPDATE

Through the generosity of our parishioners, Saint Bridget Parish provided gifts for 17 families, 22 Home Bound Parishioners, and 19 Sisters of Saint Joseph who served at Saint Bridget Parish at one time. Thank you to those who took a tag and bought presents for those in need. This project could not be completed without the hard work of the Angel Tree Committee. Thank you to those who volunteered hours of your time at a very busy time of year. Many thank you notes are coming in to Saint Bridget from families, the home bound, and the Sisters of Saint Joseph who served at Saint Bridget Parish. Our Parish made many people happy this Christmas season.
Take a look at how our Parish gives so generously:
