WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are in serious need of CAP (Chauffer a Parishioner) Drivers. This program provides to those who are incapable to drive themselves to weekend Masses, giving them an opportunity to be driven by other generous parishioners. Just a simple pick-up and drop-off! The riders are flexible as to what Mass you attend.

 

Unfortunately, our much appreciated volunteer program is in jeopardy of being terminated. The need for riders has increased. However; we do not have enough drivers to meet those needs! We need your help to keep this program running. If you are interested in joining the program as a driver please contact Meaghan ASAP at the rectory: 508-875-5959 or mturchi@stbridgetparish.org.

Thank you for your help in this matter!

Called to Serve Weekend ! ! !

 

 CALLED TO SERVE WEEKEND  

is September 10th & 11th

Every year at this time, our Parish launches its “Called To Serve” campaign, which marks the beginning of many of our Parish Ministries for the coming year.  This year, Called To Serve Weekend falls on September 10th & 11th.

We are blessed to have many dedicated and generous parishioners at St. Bridget’s, who volunteer for the many activities that help to bring the love of Christ to our parish and to the community at large.

Please note: ALL Volunteers must be CORI’d on these two days, take a few minutes to stop by the tables with your license and fill out the form!

Please consider serving as a volunteer for one or several of the Parish ministries.  We need you ALL.  As you contemplate how you can participate, reflect on these words from our Lord:

Amen, Amen, I say to you, as long as you did this to one

of the least of my brethern, you did it to Me.’

 

Would you like to get more involved in the parish? Become a Lector or Eucharistic Minister!

We need your help!

There will be training sessions for new Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors shortly. If you are interested in volunteering for these two ministries, we would appreciate hearing from you as soon as possible. We need to give our veteran Eucharistic Minsters and Lectors some breathing space from their assignments. They have been more than faithful in fulfilling their ministry. This would allow them to have a few weekends free of these ministries. We could use at least six Eucharistic ministers and four lectors.

We need your help! Please fill out the form below if you can respond to this need.
