The spiritual life experiences of students at St. Bridget are the cornerstone of the school and heart of the curriculum. St. Bridget students attend daily Mass and alternately participate in the liturgy planning and implementation. Additional faith experiences include monthly FOP (praise and worship), prayer services, all-school rosaries, May Crowning, Stations of the Cross during Lent, ongoing adoration in the chapel, and altar serving for grades 5-8. All students participate in weekly household meetings when the upcoming Gospel is read and discussed and students share prayers of petition and thanksgiving.
6th-8th graders complete service hours as part of their religion curriculum such as volunteering at the parish food pantry, raking leaves for the Poor Clare Sisters, cleaning the grounds, assisting in the school and parish offices, etc.
A sense of helping the less fortunate is instilled in all students by participating in frequent social causes such as non-uniform days to benefit Carpenter's Place or Crisis Pregnancy Center. The onsite Angel Garden provides a hands on experience for students to assist with growing and harvesting of vegetables for the local food pantries.
Homerooms hold weekly "Circle Time" when the teacher gives a prompt relating to a recent event or classroom issue and students have an opportunity to voice their opinion and be heard and validated. This practice fosters a feeling of acceptance for all.
A wide range of student activities are offered to enrich the faith and educational experience.
