Parish Priest Message
St Brigid’s Parish Quirindi
The Church in the Heart of the Community, a sharing and caring community where people come together as one when times are good and when needs arise. Our community responds to the call to bring Christ’s “Good News” to all through its services to schools, hospitals, nursing homes and homebound parishioners; through pastoral care of families and individuals, the elderly, the youth, the disadvantage and the wider community as a whole.
Our parish offers a comprehensive “Sacramental” program that runs throughout the year. Besides the daily celebration of the “Holy Eucharist”, other sacraments are available as scheduled as requested.
Every work done in the parish through the efforts of the Parish Priest, Religious Pastoral Associate, religious groups, volunteers and individuals reach-out and touch many within the wider Quirindi community. This vital work, though at times unnoticed and hidden, is the lifeblood of our flourishing community. There are challenges ahead because of not only the ageing population but also of the lack of vocations and ageing priests. It is obvious that to maintain the current life of our Parish and develop it for the future generations, communal harmony and cooperation is needed.
Those who have gone before us have for many years made St Brigid’s Parish the vibrant community it is today. Let us now rise to the challenges to move forward to even greater heights for the greater glory of God.
