Welcome to St. Bernadette Parish

As a people gathered together through our weekly Eucharistic celebration, we respond to God’s word and live the Mass in varied ways.  I welcome you to reflect on the many opportunities provided in our parish.

As the pastor of St. Bernadette, I can attest to the wonderf​ul generosity and hospitality of the people of St. Bernadette​.

Please call or stop in the parish office to obtain additional information about specific groups or services that are of interest to you, or should you need any information or assistance. We hope and pray that you will find a home here and will become actively involved in parish life.
Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Philip G. Racco, Pastor

Upcoming Events & Announcements

October is the Month of the Holy Rosary

Please join us for an evening of devotions to honor Mary, the Patroness of the United States.

On Thursday evening, October 26th at 7:OOPM we will say the Scriptural Rosary along with a presentation of roses, a gospel reading and reflection by Deacon Mark Cunningham, consecration to Mary and the Litany.

St. Bernadette Book Club

Join us for Alice McDermott’s newest novel, THE NINTH HOUR!  The setting is the Catholic Irish-American immigrant community in Brooklyn, New York in the 1940’s-50’s.  This is the period when medical care for the poor depended on the Little Nursing Sisters who acted as nurses, mothers, counselors, and “politicians” when necessary!  The characters – all presented as intensely human – the Sisters, single mother Annie and her daughter Sally, and other neighborhood shakers-and- movers make the novel a spectacular piece of fiction due to McDermott’s superb command of descriptive language.  Interlaced with humor, the line between the secular and the religious is bridged occasionally offering the reader a chance to “pick sides!”  McDermott explores human loss, spirituality, conscience decision-making, and strength and courage of women determined to live out their own lives despite challenges. Reviewed by top publications, THE NINTH HOUR is a winner!  Meet in the Parish Library on Thursday, October 26th at 7:00 PM.

Priesthood Sunday

October 29, 2017
In preparation for Priesthood Sunday would you please: Pray that the Holy Spirit may inspire more men to discern this call of service. On this day we gratefully reflect on the gift of priesthood for the Church and for those men who have generously responded to this vocation.

On November 8, a state wide Eucharistic Adoration for Vocations (Ohio Adores) will take place. To celebrate National Vocation Awareness Week, Catholic parishes across the state of Ohio will be offering Eucharist Adoration to unite in one voice of prayer for an increase in priestly and religious vocations. You are invited to take part in this important day of prayer. Local locations are: St. Raphael in Bay Village; St. John Cathedral; and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Cleveland West.

All Souls Day Memorial Mass

Our annual Memorial Mass for the Deceased of our Parish Community is on All Souls Day, Thursday, November 2 at 7:00PM. We will read the names of all whose funerals were held at St. Bernadette Church from October 1, 2016 until September 30, 2017. All are invited to join us to pray for and remember our deceased relatives and friends, especially those of our parish who died during this past year.

As in the past, a Litany of Masses for your beloved deceased will be offered during the coming year. An envelope is in the monthly packet to list the names.

Mass Intentions for 2018

Mass intentions for 2018 are now being accepted. Due to a limited number of Masses, we must limit Mass intentions to three per family. Please coordinate intentions with your parents, siblings and other family members. We also ask that only one of your Mass requests be on a weekend. Cannon Law requires one weekend Mass each week be offered for the parish. That Mass will be the 8:00AM on Sunday monring and it will not be available for intentions. Thank you for your cooperation.
