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.

new life has affluence, sophistication & a special relationship with a

of Japanese-Americans. The novel covers many historical events

Our observance of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, a day of fast and abstinence for Catholics. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of universal fast and abstinence. Abstinence is obligatory on all Fridays of Lent. Fasting is obligatory for all who have completed their 18th year and have not yet reached their 60th year. Fasting allows a person to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may be taken, not to equal one full meal. Abstinence (from meat) is obligatory for all who have reached their 14th year.

If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate more readily his Resurrection.
