Welcome to the Community of St. Bridget!
We are a lay led, inclusive, Roman Catholic eucharistic community seeking truth and justice. We support Catholic women who have been called to the priesthood by God and their communities. In the Cleveland area we have four priests and a deacon. In 2014, two of these women, Ann Klonowski and Mary Eileen Collingwood, organized a worshiping community known as the Community of St. Bridget: an inclusive Catholic community. Housed in the Brecksville United Church of Christ, the community celebrates weekly masses.
“Inclusive” is important to the Community of St. Bridget. We like James Joyce’s famous sentiment: “Catholic means: here comes everybody.” When we say that all are welcome, we mean that all are welcome! No matter your marital status, sex or sexual orientation or identity, your age, race, national origin or religion, we would love to have you come worship with us!
In addition to regular liturgies, our priests are also available to preside at home masses, weddings, funerals, and provide the sacrament of the sick. Please contact them to make arrangements.

Please join in our joy and come celebrate with us!
Inspired by the words of Pope Francis,
we are a community that builds bridges, NOT walls.
