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 wonderful 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

NEW BOOK FOR ST. BERNADETTE BOOK CLUB
Please join us on Thursday, October 27 at 7:00PM in
the Parish Library for the discussion of the New York Times
bestseller, Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom.
This novel offers us insight into discrimination, ungodly
attitudes, and a human live beyond boundaries of color,
statues. It overwhelms with the strength of human survival,
and the challenge of forgiveness amid hatred. An excellent
read, Grissom offers us much to ponder.
