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

Eucharistic Ministers Needed for the CARE Ministry

We are in immediate of trained Eucharistic Ministers to bring Communion to the Sick and Homebound of our parish. In the past few months, several of our current CARE Ministers, who have been visiting and bringing Communion to your families or parish friends, have fallen ill or have incurred injuries that are temporarily preventing them from continuing their ministry to the sick. Please, we are in need of 10 Eucharistic Ministers NOW to give as little as 30 minutes per month during June, July and August. Days and times are flexible, and our homebound parishioners will be so grateful for the opportunity to receive Eucharist! Call Chris Krysiak at the Parish Office to sign-up: 440-734-1300.
