A Short History of our Parish

The “Mother Church” of Nassau County had its first Mass in 1840. In 1851, a farmhouse was purchased and converted to the first church. In 1856, the church was dedicated to St. Brigid of Kildare.  In 1895, the second church was dedicated.  It moved across the street in 1918 and was converted to the first school.  It then became St. Anthony’s Hall.  The third and present St. Brigid’s Church was completed in 1916. In 1924, the rectory and a convent were built.  The convent is now the Schaefer Center. The present school (St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope Regional School on Maple Avenue) was built in 1955 and expanded in 1965.  A convent was built next to the school which is now leased by the Westbrook Preparatory Academy.

St. Brigid’s is the first Roman Catholic Church of Nassau County by date, and it is first in the hearts and minds of the people who pray here.
