St. Brigid School is Growing as Construction begins on Building Expansion Project

MIDLAND - The Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw, joined with local leaders this morning to break ground on a $2.8 million school and parish center expansion at St. Brigid of Kildare School,  located at the downtown intersection of Ashman and Larkin streets.

The 12,700-square-foot addition to the St. Brigid campus will include a gymnasium, locker rooms, kitchen, classrooms and offices. The former school cafeteria and multi-purpose room will be converted into new class rooms. The project will allow the school's kindergarten class to move back into building from its rented location across Larkin Street as well as for the library to be moved from the current parish center into the school. 

The Catholic school’s enrollment has been on the rise from 67 students to 145 since 2004. That number has increased with the school’s addition of sixth grade in 2006, seventh grade in 2007 and eighth grade 2008.
