This red brick Italian Gothic church formally opened its doors in 1887 in Jersey City, New Jersey. Today it houses the parish business office, a bustling day-care center and grammar school, a meeting room for youth of the parish, and a religious education center for both children and adults. St. Bridget’s church, with its spacious rear section, is an ideal location for large and small meetings and retreats.
St. Bridget’s continues to be a worship and gathering place for the descendants of the Irish, Italian and Polish settlers who founded it, as well as the many Filipino and Spanish groups who have moved into the neighborhood. St. Bridget’s also boasts two great volunteer choirs, one in English and one in Spanish, which add greatly to the prayerful worship experience.
