New Safe Environment (SE) Training Requirement for Children's Ministries (Including Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist):


Beginning September 1, 2017, all volunteers working with minors, including Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, are required to take “Protecting Children in the 21st Century.”  The three-lesson course covers

   1) Child Abuse; 

   2) Internet Safety; and

   3) Bullying.


This program replaces ALL live training presentations for adults. 


SE training is taken online at  To do so, you must first fill out a volunteer application (available in the parish office) and turn it in to Estella Diaz (583-6563), who will explain the process of the new SE training and clearance.


The ministries at St. Brigid are the arteries of our parish that carry the love, wisdom and teaching of Jesus himself to our community of faithful. We are so blessed to have dedicated staff and volunteers that  work together as the body of Christ for the Glory of God.


The Lord has assigned us all a mission. Do you feel you are being called to be a part of a ministry? Information on some of our larger ministries can be found by clicking on the link in the left margin. You can also use the outline of ministries, below, to find a person to contact for more information. A complete Ministry Guide is available at the Parish Office.
