St. Bridget’s New Media Journey
St. Bridget’s is pleased to share the news of the launch of our new web presence at www.stbridgeteastfalls.org. After a summer filled with reflection and construction, our new web presence is a warm and welcoming home for Catholics and friends, featuring necessary informational materials and content meant to evangelize. As pleased as we are by our new website, we see both our site and St. Bridget’s Facebook page to very much be works in progress.
Receive Our E-mail Newsletter — St. Bridget’s is now posting regular news, events, and informational materials on our “Parish Life & News” blog. You can sign up via e-mail on our homepage to automatically receive the latest news and information as it’s published to ensure you don’t miss anything happening at the parish.

It’s a direct and easy way to stay informed and ensure you don’t miss an important community gathering! http://stbridgeteastfalls.org/calendar/
Parishioner Registration — Ideally St. Bridget’s would like to be able to fully and easily register new parishioners via the website. We hope to have this process worked out in the near future.
New Media Ministers Wanted — We are seeking parishioners to assist in our new web presence willing to work to enhance our web presence.
We want to form a technology/website committee that would take leadership of the parish website and media outreach efforts.
The goal is to bring creative minds together for the benefit of the parish. If you’d be interested in being a member of this new committee, please contact Fr. Devlin: firstname.lastname@example.org ; or Sister Margaret Jude, SSJ: email@example.com
Mrs. Mary Beth Molloy has already volunteered to direct the parish Facebook Page, working in conjunction with Sister Margaret Jude, SSJ & Father Devlin. Would you consider joining Marybeth in sharing your technology skills and your creativity?
