Parishes Mission Statement
As Members of the St. Bridget and St. Stanislaus Kostka parishes of West Rutland, we reach out to our community through faith, prayer and service, and respond with compassion to the spiritual and corporal needs of all.
About Our Parishes
St. Bridget and St. Stanislaus Kostka churches are nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Green Mountains. Located in the quaint town of West Rutland, Vermont, these churches have served area Catholics for over 150 years. An area once rich in Marble deposits, West Rutland became home to many people of diverse cultures.
These cultures gave rise to the rich histories of St. Bridget and St. Stanislaus Kostka Parishes. We invite you to come and experience our parishes as we join together as one Catholic family in worship of our Father.
New Administrator Named for St. Bridget and St. Stanislaus Kostka Churches as We Bid Farewell to Father Vincent
Father Vincent Coppola, acting Administrator for St. Bridget and St. Stanislaus Kostka churches has been called by his order to accept a new position serving churches of South Bend, Indiana. His dedication and service to our parishes has blessed our community greatly and he will be deeply missed by everyone.
As of July 1, 2015, Rev. Romanus Igweonu will be the new administrator for St. Bridget and St. Stanislaus Kostka Churches. Father Romanus states he is looking forward to a “collaborative and friendly work atmosphere where I can both share and learn from colleagues with a focus on Jesus who is our Lord and Savior.” For more information about Father Romanus click here.
Father Vincent will be truly missed. Our sadness at his departure is coupled with happiness for the parishes of South Bend who Father Vinny will serve. We are thankful for the appointment of Father Romanus to our parishes and we welcome him to our West Rutland community!
