St. Bridget Parish Picnic & Elephant Stampede!

St. Bridget has a Sister Parish in Namitembo, Malawi, Africa. Our global outreach supports educational projects such as teacher housing and a Trade School. In our shared faith we want to grow in understanding of our diverse backgrounds and serve each other through prayer.

Come to the Annual Parish Picnic in September, which unites the community in support for our sister parish. The group extends volunteer opportunities to plan, advertise, set-up, cook, and cleanup for this fun fall event.

Mission Statement – 2016

The Friends of Namitembo work to connect the communities of St. Bridget and Namitembo, to develop relationships to support educational projects, to grow in understanding of our shared faith and diverse backgrounds, and to serve each other through prayer.

Vision Statement

The Friends of Namitembo envision: communication on a regular basis; exchange of visits to understand cultures; continue support of Namitembo schools; encourage projects that promote self-sustainability; and as a community pray for the health and welfare of the Namitembo community and they pray for us.
