Student Ministry

Meet Christ. Know Christ.
Love Christ. Serve Christ.

St. Bridget Student Ministries strives to be a place of belonging for all middle and high school students. We believe that God loves you and that He has a plan for your life - a life of abundance! (John 10:10) And we desire to bring fun into everything we do - through Summer Camp, Steubenville Youth Conference, Retreats, Lock-Ins, and regular youth nights with small groups. Having stood the test of time, our ministry has provided a community to all those who enter our doors! If you or someone you know is interested in getting involved, we encourage you to reach out and connect with us.

Meet our Youth Ministers

Ashley Munroe
Director of Youth Ministry

Hey, hi, hello everyone!! It is a joy and an honor to be one of your youth ministers here at St. Bridget! Here is just a little bit about me: I was born and raised in Massachusetts (right where the pilgrims landed) and it was through youth ministry when I was in High School that I discovered who Christ is.

I went to college at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio where I studied Theology and Youth Ministry and fell even more in love with the Lord. I am so excited to be out here in the Rockford area and for the opportunity to walk with all of you! Peace & Blessings!

Jake Washington
Middle School Youth Minister

Hey everyone! I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to be one of the youth ministers at St. Bridget. I was born and raised in Loves Park and went to school here at St. Bridget! It is an honor to work for the parish that I grew up in and I plan on passing on the same love and joy I received when I was in Middle School. Before I took the Youth Ministry position I was enrolled at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point for a degree in Wildlife Ecology. When I’m not working, I am either fishing, hunting, or taking nature walks. I look forward to meeting all of you and growing in our relationships with the Lord. God bless!
