The Town of Warren lies completely within the geographic borders of the parish of St. Bridget. Historically, however, most of the parishioners came from the northwest section of the town.

Before the arrival of St. Bridget Church in Cornwall Bridge, Mass was said in the home of William Forestelle on Brick School Rd. William Forestelle like his neighbors, the Breens and Duggans, Warren Church 1885did not settle in the northwest corner for the railroad and furnace work, but bought land and farmed. Eventually the Forestelle farm extended to more than 500 acres and, in the 20th Century, became Warren Woods Park. William Forestelle and his wife, Catherine Duggan, are buried in St. Bridget Cemetery along with the one of the more noteworthy monuments that of Baby Georgie Duggan who died 30 June 1885.
