St. Blaise (or Blase) (d. 320) enjoyed widespread veneration in the Eastern and Western Churches due to many cures attributed to him. According to tradition, he was Bishop of Sebaste in Armenia and was martyred under Licinius. On this day the Church gives a "Blessing of the Throats" in honor of St. Blaise. From the eighth century he has been invoked on behalf of the sick, especially those afflicted with illnesses of the throat. St. Blaise is included in the list of Fourteen Holy Helpers.

St. Brigid of Ireland (453-523) is commemorated in the Roman Martyrology today. Today is celebrated as a Feast in Ireland and an Optional Memorial in New Zealand. Surnamed "the Mary of the Gael," St. Brigid was born at Faughart, near Dundalk. She took the veil in her youth and eventually founded the nunnery of Kildare, the first to be erected on Irish soil, thus becoming the spiritual mother of all Irish nuns. Around her name there have been formed hundreds of legends, which could be fittingly described as "the Little Flowers of St. Brigid," the keynote being mercy and pity for the poor.

The schedule follows the Union Public School schedule as closely as possible. Information regarding registration is published in the church bulletin. Click here for the CCD class schedule.

If you move, please let us know. Certificates of Eligibility (Godparent/Sponsor certificate) will only be given to registered parishioners. 

Join the Choir

The Music Ministry supports the singing and worship of the congregation. Such a wondrous ministry requires many gifts of talent, time, and treasure. We strive to put our parish’s many gifts to work so that our most important work may be made possible to engage fully through service and participation in our worship as the Body of Christ.
