Welcome from our Pastor: 
Our warmest welcome to
St. Bridget of Kildare Parish. 
We are a Roman Catholic church and elementary school. Our parish of over 1,650 families is located in Parma, Ohio and is named after our patroness, Bridget of Kildare, from Ireland. We are dedicated to the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, prayer and worship, sacramental life, sharing the Gospel, education, and supporting each other and our community through our more than 40 vibrant ministries and parish groups. 
I hope that the information about
 St. Bridget of Kildare Parish contained in this website will be helpful to you. We encourage you to visit our church and experience the welcoming community that has had a presence in the Parma community for 60 years.
With prayers and blessings,
Rev. Robert W. Wisniewski, Jr.
