St Bridget of Kildare Parish Ladies Guild
Together, with our spiritual director Rev. Robert W. Wisniewski, Jr. we the Ladies Guild of St.Bridget of Kildare Parish, promote and support the welfare of the parish. Together, we initiate, plan and participate in religious, educational, social and service activities which promote fellowship and community within our parish. We warmly invite all Ladies of the Parish to consider donating your talents and time to participate in a very rewarding experience.
At a glance
God has given us many gifts and calls us to use those gifts to build up His Kingdom. Our faith identifies us as stewards and gives us a relationship with God. Many of these gifts are given for our needs; others are given for the needs of others. Stewardship is a ministry by which we nurture and share our gifts of time, talent and treasure.
What is God asking us to do today?
There are a lot of things that you could do, but you've got to do what God has asked you to do--and stick with it.
