Mental Health Ministry

Our Mental Health Ministry is part of a diocesan wide effort to end the stigma of mental illness, so people no longer suffer in silence. Saint Brigid Mental Health Ministry serves as a bridge to community resources for parishioners experiencing difficulties in their lives resulting from or suffering with mental illness, personally or relationally.  

We prayerfully accompany, support, and pray for those we serve and connect them with resources in the community. Learn more in this Ministry Highlight. 

 

January 22, 2022 - A new Saint for Mental Health Intercession!

Read about the newly beatified St. Rutilio Grande, a Jesuit priest and martyr, who suffered periods of severe mental illness.  His faith community cared for him in his suffering and he recovered to minister to the people of El Salvador.

 

 

 

Prayer Against Anxiety and Depression

Lord, when all is darkness and we feel our weakness and helplessness, give us the sense of your presence, your love, and your strength. Help us to have perfect trust in your protecting love. Bless us with your strengthening power so nothing may frighten or worry us. We trust that in living close to you, we shall see your hand, your purpose, your will through all things. - St. Ignatius of Loyola
