On June 29, 2017, our parish family was canonically established by the merging of the previous Saint Bridget Parish, Epiphany Parish, and Saint Thomas Becket Parish. It is our hope that you will find within the pages of our website a great respect for the history of Catholicity here in the Town of Cheshire. We hope you will consider joining us as we begin this new chapter in Growing Together in Faith and in spreading the Gospel message here in Cheshire and beyond.
The Saint Bridget of Sweden Parish Pastoral Council is now continuing the work of developing a mission statement, vision statement, and a Strategic Plan for our parish family. The Holy Spirit is indeed at work!
FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
Dear Friends in Christ:
As always remember to pray for our parish families and ask God’s blessings as we build His kingdom here. Please know that I am praying for you, and I ask for your prayers for me, that together through the intercession of Saint Bridget of Sweden, our Patroness, and united in the Eucharist, we will reflect the presence of Jesus to the world.
The Catholic faith came to our town in the mid 1800’s beginning with just a few members of the faith. The Faith continued to spread in town and today almost 4,000 families call Saint Bridget of Sweden Parish their spiritual home.
