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
St. Bernadette Church

RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
The Journey Begins September 7th

Would you like to know more about how Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church
can make a positive difference in your life? Call 440-734-1300 to
contact Fr. Phil Racco or Chris Krysiak for more information.

Join us for an Evening of Inquiry on either Aug. 24th or Aug. 30th
at 7:00pm in the Parish Office.




Beginning Monday evening, September 12th from 7:00-8:00PM
and repeated again on Tuesday morning, September 13, from 9:30-11:00AM
we will initiate Scripture Study on the Book of Genesis in the Upper Room.
Genesis is the first book of the Bible and will help us understand the origins of
our Christian faith. Just a few questions to whet our appetites…

Why are there two creation stories and which one is correct?
What is the truth about “Adam and Eve?”

Eating an apple got us into this mess?
  “Our Father Abraham?” Whose father is he?

Every adult is very welcome – parishioners and non-parishioners!
No previous Bible study is necessary! No homework! No tests!
No small groups! No registration! Just bring your Bible; notes
are provided. Questions are welcome, but you are free
to just come and listen, too! For more information, contact
Sister Donna Marie at sdm@stbern.net or 440-734-1300.



All adults are welcome to join the discussion of William Kent Krueger’s New York Times
bestseller, Ordinary Grace. The story is the reflection of Frank Drum’s experience of
his 13th summer from his perspective, now revealed 40 years later. A preacher’s son
with a disenchanted mother, he struggles along with his siblings and neighbors to
understand “God’s Plan” during this summer of death, loss, murder, nature and the
unraveling of the relationships of people closest to him. The novel is a brilliant expose
of the endurance of relationships in a world falling apart and crying for wisdom
and the grace of God. Join us on Tuesday, September 20th at 7:00PM
in the Upper Room! Questions? Call Sister Donna Marie at 734-1300.



Want to get more out of Mass?
Searching for how the Father is at work in your daily life?
Do you have a sense that there’s something more to the faith
than what you’ve learned so far? Fr. Jeff invites all high school age
students to join him each Sunday night at 7 pm in the Upper Room
to break open the Word of God and reflect on how it speaks
to the realities of daily life.
