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

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.

Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience is a guided spiritual journey offering the experience of Lourdes in a local interactive “pilgrimage” event.
