Dominican Sister talking to the school children about Consecrated Religious Life.
St. Brigid has been a wonderful Catholic Parish community for the last 170 years. Founded in 1849, it has sought to serve the needs of our own parish community, to respond to the many needs of the larger community of Xenia, and continues to reach out even beyond our parish and city boundaries. We are now part of a pastoral region with St. Augustine in Jamestown and St. Paul in Yellow Springs. We rejoice that you have taken the time to check us out. Whether you are a long-standing member of the Parish, or of more recent vintage, or just happened to check us out today – WELCOME!
You are most welcome to explore this website which seeks to help you familiarize yourselves to the life of our community, connect you to specific ministries. and to other connected sites. If you have any questions, simply call the Office (937-372-3193), talk to the Pastor, or any one of the staff or contacts listed for each area of ministry.
What a great community! We are a parish of about 1000 households who remain committed to being present to parishioners and others alike, to bringing the word, light, compassion, love and care of the Lord to all who connect with us.
So, come and make yourself “at home” with us, and learn with us to listen to the Lord, care for his people, and walk together in faith and hope.
As we reopen the church for Masses we have put some procedures in place. We are cleaning and disinfecting the church, pews, and restrooms after every Mass. This includes between 8 am and 9:30 am Mass on Sunday. Pews have been marked off with different colors that will be used at different Masses. please use social distancing between families. Ushers will help direct you and be available for any questions.
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the most Holy Sacrament.I love you above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from You.

Prayer for Vocations
Almighty Father, you have created us for some definite purpose. Grant us the grace to know the path you have planned for us in this life and to respond with a generous “Yes.” Make our archdiocese, parishes, homes and hearts fruitful ground for Your gift of vocations. May our young people respond to Your call with courage and zeal. Stir among our men a desire and the strength to be good and holy priests. Bless us with consecrated religious and those called to a chaste single life, permanent deacons, and faithful husbands and wives, who are a sign of Christ’s love for His Church. We commend our prayer for vocations to You, Father, through the intercession of Mary our Mother, in the Holy Spirit, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
St. Michael Prayer
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
St. Brigid Parish is a welcoming Catholic community which brings Christ to all through life-giving worship, faith-based and academic education, local and global outreach, and service to others through a variety of ministries. We are a Catholic faith-filled community that celebrates a sacramental life to bring the love of God to all.
