The name celebrates the historical legacies of both schools, which were founded by the Sisters of Mercy.  Following the vision of the Sisters of Mercy, St. Brigid School works to educate children, model the teachings of Jesus, and allow opportunities for students to serve those in need.  Our work creates a lasting future for generations of children.
