Married couples of St Brigid parish provide an opportunity
for engaged couples to think about their marriage, not just
their wedding day. The married couples offer their own experiences
in many aspects of marriage and give the engaged couples
time to think about and discuss their own dreams and expectations.
The program takes place over one weekend in late winter.
The Marriage Prep team meets several times during the year
to plan the weekend events. Many hands are needed to provide
a fun and meaningful experience for the engaged couples.

Boy Scout Troop 160 and Cub Scout Pack 160 seek to support
the growth of each young boy into a responsible and reliable
young man. By gradually giving each boy more responsibility
and the opportunity to take part in more adventurous activities
each year, the boy grows more independent. Boys can start
as early as first grade as a Tiger Cub then move into Cub
Scouts during second grade. When they reach sixth grade,
they can join the Boy Scouts and take part in weekend camping
activities and a two week long summer camp. Older Boy Scouts
have opportunities with high adventure trips during the
summer such as canoeing in the Boundary Waters, white water
rafting, and hiking in the mountains of New Mexico. See

at St. Brigid's and in Lexington.
