Common Threads
After 34 years of service to St. Brigid of Kildare Parish, 25 of those years serving as pastor, Monsignor Joseph M. Hendricks will be transferring from his duties as pastor of our parish to a full-time role at the Diocese of Columbus. Bishop Fernandes has appointed Monsignor Hendricks as the Bishop’s delegate for community relations, effective July 11, 2023. St. Brigid of Kildare Parish will be welcoming Father James P. Black as pastor beginning in July, after fulfilling his current role as pastor of St. Joan of Arc Church in Powell.

In his new role, Monsignor Hendricks will be working directly with Bishop Fernandes, community leaders, and government officials to oversee corporate and community relations for the Diocese of Columbus. He will also work with pastors on parish leadership and financial management. As a community representative of the Bishop, he will continue his work on the boards of United Way – Success by Third Grade, YMCA of Central Ohio Metro Board, and The Mt. Carmel Foundation. He will also continue his work as immediate past chair of the board of Life Care Alliance, and consultant and advisor to Ohio Dominican University and the Mt. Carmel Collaborative.

In addition to his new full-time role, Monsignor Hendricks will continue his current duties and positions in the Diocese of Columbus. He is the president and CEO of the Villas of St. Therese in Plain City, which is currently under construction. He chairs the Diocesan Community Retirement Board of Trustees, a sole member corporation of dozens of agencies in the Diocese of Columbus. He also serves as the vice president and COO of Seton Square Housing, Inc, which is comprised of 13 facilities and 1,000 units of HUD Housing sponsored by the Diocese of Columbus. He also oversees the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, the Catholic Cemeteries, and the Chancery renovation. Monsignor Hendricks will continue his other community relations roles, including co-chair to the Mt. Carmel Hospital Campaign, delegate for Intel, treasurer, finance chair, and school board member for St. Mary German Village, and working with the collaborative with the African American Community of Faith Leaders.

In his 25 years as pastor at St. Brigid of Kildare Parish, Monsignor Hendricks has been monumental in the growth of our parish from a small gathering in a barn to the parish of nearly 3,000 families that it is today. He has spearheaded campaigns to build the most recently established Catholic school in the Diocese of Columbus, opening our parish educational center in 1996. He oversaw the expansion of our church, and later the addition of Hendricks Hall. He has created a financial structure for our parish and school that emphasizes stability for the long-term, leaving our parish with no capital debt and in a positive financial position.

St. Brigid of Kildare Parish will be welcoming Fr. James Black, who has been pastor at St. Joan of Arc Church in Powell since 2013. St. Joan of Arc was founded in 1987 in southern Delaware County and has grown to a parish that now serves nearly 4,000 families and 1,200 religious education students. Fr. Black has spent the last 10 years leading the members of St. Joan of Arc through continuous growth and overseeing their over 60 ministries that serve God.

Fr. Black has also served as pastor of St. Peter Church in Chillicothe and St. Mary Church in Delaware. Prior to that, he served as associate pastor at St. Matthew Church in Gahanna, St. Catharine Church in Columbus, and St. Joseph Cathedral. He also served as chaplain of Bishop Hartley High School in Columbus.

Fr. Black is a native of Columbus, and holds a bachelor’s degree from Franklin University and a master’s degree from the Pontifical College Josephinum. He was ordained to the priesthood in June of 1988 at St. Joseph Cathedral in Columbus by Bishop James A. Griffin.

Monsignor Hendricks will continue to reside in Dublin, Ohio as he fulfills his new and current roles at the Diocese of Columbus. Our parish will be forever grateful for the years of service, knowledge, and compassion Monsignor Hendricks dedicated to us all.

Welcome Deacon Candidate Bryan Inderhees
Beginning this weekend, St. Brigid of Kildare is happy to welcome Deacon candidate Bryan Inderhees to our parish. Bryan will be working closely with our clergy once a month to observe and get to know the parish as part of his required two-year internship before he is ordained as a Deacon.

Bryan is a member of St. Peter Church in Columbus, where he has served as an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion, lay reader, and sacristan. He also helps with St. Peter's Baptism preparation and is a member of the Knights of Columbus. Bryan resides in Columbus with his wife Emelie, two children, and one child on the way (due in March). He is a senior engineer at Honda and holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. Bryan grew up in Cincinnati.

Lenten Soup Suppers Are Back
Please join us for Soup Suppers during Lent on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 PM in Hendricks Hall
DATES: Tuesdays, February 28, March 7, March 15, March 22, March 29 
Lent – that ancient season of reflection and preparation for Easter begins February 22, 2023. Many things have been planned to invite you to go deeper into the spiritual riches that come to us during this holy season, and we invite you to participate in them. During COVID we were not able to have our Soup Suppers but this year we will start them once again.  Lenten Soup Suppers are on Tuesdays during Lent at 6:00 PM in Hendricks Hall. We gather for a simple supper of soup and bread. This simple meal combined with a short video about people in other parts of our world will help remind us of the simplicity of life. This year we will visit three countries: Honduras, Philippines and Kenya. Because this is a parish-wide event we ask various ministries to be the hosts but everyone is encouraged to come together to share a simple meal. This is a wonderful thing for families to do together (from grandparents to the youngest grandchild) as a family Lenten practice. We begin at 6:00 and finish in time for those who wish to attend Stations of the Cross at 7:00 PM will be able to do so.  
Easter Egg Hunt
The 23rd Annual St. Brigid’s Easter Egg Hunt will be held on Saturday, April 8th at 1:00 pm on Brigid’s Green (located at 7210 Avery Road, directly across the street from the church on Avery Road). The hunt will begin following the Blessing of Easter Food, which is scheduled at 12 pm in the church. 
Please note: the event will start promptly at 1:00 pm, plan to arrive a little early to park and make your way to the field.

All children ages 8 years and younger are invited. The children will be grouped in 3 age groups; ages 3 & under, ages 4-6, and ages 7-8. Each age group will have its own egg hunt area, and one grand prize will be provided for each age group.

Advanced registration or signup is not required. In the event of inclement weather, please check our website for a message as to whether or not the event will be held. If you have questions, or would like additional information, please contact Matt Blouir at
RCIA Explained
On February 26 at the 11 a.m. Mass our Catechumens will participate in the Rite of Sending. Catechumens are those participating in RCIA to become Catholic, who have not yet been baptized. The Rite of Sending offers the local community the opportunity to express its approval of the catechumens and to send them forth, assured of the parish’s care and support, to the Rite of Election with Bishop Fernandez the same afternoon. This step is called election because the acceptance made by the Church community is founded on the election by God, in whose name the Church acts. Before the Rite of Election is celebrated the catechumens are expected to have undergone a conversion in mind and in action and to have developed a sufficient acquaintance with Christian teaching as well as a spirit of faith and charity. With deliberate will and an enlightened faith they must have the intention to receive the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil, a resolve they will express publicly in the actual celebration of the Rite. From this moment on, they will be referred to as the Elect. Please keep them in your prayers. You can find prayer cards with their names, as well as those of our Candidates and Confirmands, in the gathering space of church.  
The Chosen Lenten Series
Join us on the Wednesdays of Lent to watch and discuss the acclaimed series: The Chosen. It is a series that invites us to see Jesus through the eyes of those who knew him. It is scripturally based with added backstories. We will view each episode of Season 1 and have sharing afterward. In order to finish before Holy Week there will be two evenings when we will watch two episodes but will still finish no later than 9:00.

It would be helpful to buy the guide What Does It Mean to Be Chosen?: An Interactive Bible Study (Volume 1) (The Chosen Bible Study Series) Paperback – January 21, 2021  by Amanda Jenkins , Dallas Jenkins and Dr. Douglas S. Huffman . Available on Amazon (paperback and Kindle).

Journey with us into this wonderful story, which will help us reflect more deeply on our relationship with Christ, our own story of faith and redemption, and the invitation to adventure with God.

"HeBrews a Better Blend"
Join with others on Tuesday mornings (after the 9 AM Mass) to explore the Letter to the Hebrews. We will be using the book HeBrews – a better blend by Leah Adams. Hebrews was written (63-64 AD) at a time when everything in society seemed to be shaking and people of faith were wondering, “what are we to do?” That sounds very much like our own time of 2023 AD. The writer of the Letter to the Hebrews speaks to those whose faith was faltering. We will see the faith journeys of regular people that we now consider to be heroes of the faith. As we move through Leah Adams’ book and the Letter to the Hebrews, we find encouragement in our own faith journey to help us through those times when our faith falters. This is an eight-week study that includes five days of lessons that you can do on your own at home. This is a good Letter to study as part of your Lenten journey. 

Hendricks Hall: Berry Room. 9:30 – 11:00 AM. Tuesdays from February 28- March 28 then finishing on April 18 and 25.

The books can be purchased from Amazon (Kindle version available) or No registration necessary and everyone is welcome! —Sister Teresa

Rice Bowls Change Lives
Despite our promises to slow down after COVID, slowly we have gone back to what is often a frenetic pace of living. When our lives seem to be just going from one activity to the next with such speed, we may forget about our relationship with God, others and the world around us and the people with whom we share this planet—our common home.

Lent invites us to slow life down and pay attention. Through the three ancient pillars of the spiritual life: prayerfasting and almsgiving, we give ourselves time to grow closer to God and gain a better understanding of how our actions are impacting the lives of our sisters and brothers near and far. We also give God some time to spend with us. One thing that is offered at St. Brigid of Kildare, that takes in prayer, fasting and almsgiving is the Rice Bowl.

Sometimes we may wonder does the Rice Bowl make any difference. Put that thought to rest because it makes a significant difference to people in other parts of the world and people within our own Diocese of Columbus. 100 % of the monies is used to alleviate the suffering caused by homelessness, hunger and poverty and 5% is used for people around the world and 25% will remain in our home Diocese. We unite with families across the country unite to put our faith into action through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Catholic Relief Services is one of the most respected charitable organizations in the whole world. It is something we all can be proud of and we can all participate in the work they do to give not only direct aid but also teach people to help themselves, their families and communities. Through CRS Rice Bowl, families learn about how our sisters and brothers across the globe overcome hardships like hunger and malnutrition, and how through Lenten alms, we have the power to make the world a better place for all. This year we will visit Honduras, Philippines and Kenya. View Stories of Hope to further understand the effect CRS has on people’s lives . Don’t forget to pick up your Rice Bowl and make it a shared family Lenten practice.
