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

Upcoming News & Events


Are you are a new faith seeker, a faith-filled disciple, or anything in between, you will benefit from this retreat. We hope that you will pray and discern if God is inviting YOU to join us for this amazing spiritual and uplifting experience.

The weekend will provide you the opportunity to encounter Jesus in a personal and intimate way through the witness of others, small group discussions, the celebration of the sacraments, and adoration. If you are willing to give Jesus the weekend, he will not disappoint.

Some thoughts from folks who attended the retreat in January:

“Little did I know how good it was going to be. By the time the retreat was over, what I had gained and lost has changed me forever.”

“It is a small sacrifice of time, but the journey that it sets you on could be the path to many rewards and answers.”

The retreat will begin on Friday evening, run throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday, and conclude on Monday evening.

Christ Present in Action Adopt-A-Family

When I was hungry, you gave me to eat; When I was thirsty, you gave me to drink; What so ever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me.

It is time again for the families of St. Bernadette to open their hearts to the needy. The parishes we will be helping this year include Blessed Trinity, St. Stephen, La Sagrada Familia
St. Agnes, Elyria, and St. Pat’s through St. Bernadette School’s program.

In adopting a family, you make a commitment to provide a box of food worth at least $75 and a gift for each family member.

The need and support continues to be great in these parishes. They are so happy to be included in this program. The gifts you give may be the only gifts these families will receive this Christmas. For large families you may request to share sponsorship with another parish family.

We need to have your decision by November 8. You will receive information on the family you will be adopting by the middle of November, or by Thanksgiving Day. Boxes of wrapped gifts and food will be collected on December 15 between 9:00 and 10:30AM in St. Bernadette’s Dempsey Hall. From 10:30AM to 11:30AM the boxes will be loaded into the volunteers’ vehicles for transportation to the churches. If you can help deliver, please indicate that on this form.

Donations for hams and food for the school’s families can be put in the Sunday collection baskets or mailed to the parish office. Please make checks payable to St. Bernadette Church and enclose in an envelope marked “Adopt A Family.” Forms will be available in the back of the church. Please complete the form below and place it in the collection basket, drop it off, or mail it to the parish office by November 8. Your continued support of this very special program is very much appreciated. If you have any questions, please call Gale Valore at 440-316-7282 or Felicia Madden at 440-225-3467.

Adopt-A-Family Forms are available HERE. Please fill out and return to the Parish Office.
