Community Action

Community Action Committee

The Community Action Committee brings together resources from the parish – both vounteers and many kinds of donations – to supply local hunger centers and charitable organizations. Financial proceeds from the red border envelopes are distributed each month to these organizations.

At Christmas Time this group oversees the Adopt-A-Family Program where people from the parish as well as entire classes at St. Bernadette buy gifts and food for an entire family in need.
Felicia Madden is coordinator for this outreach as well as being chairperson for the Community Action Committee.

On the second and last Wednesdays, every month, St. Bernadette volunteers prepare the whole meal for St. Patrick’s (Bridge Ave.) Evening Meals.


Sandwiches will be made from 1:45 to 3:15PM on November 30th and December 28th, the last Wednesday each month. All are welcome to come and participate in this event. Sandwiches made at home and brought to Dempsey Hall on those days are always appreciated as well.
