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

There is no substitute for the celebration of our Lord's mysteries at Mass, but there is an unending supply of spiritual treasures available to the Church. During this time when we are cut off from the consolation of the public celebration of the Mass and the regular reception of the Holy Eucharist, it is a time for us to drink deeply from the wellspring of these spiritual treasures.  Our Lord tells us in the Gospel of John 'I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.' Indeed, our Lord does not abandon us now. I encourage you to read through and consider what is made available here. Be sure to check regularly as we will add any rituals or guides that we find helpful. This includes worship aids for many of the Livestreamed Masses and other liturgical celebrations.

Dear Parishioners,

Thank you for your support of our parish’s many ministries. I’d like to ask you to consider joining many of your fellow parishioners at St. Bernadette in making your generous gifts through Faith Direct.

This request is critical as churches nationwide are temporarily closing due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To keep the work of our church going, we are currently depending on the incoming monies from those using eGiving. Faith Direct is a convenient and secure electronic giving (eGiving) program that will enable you to continue giving to St. Bernadette from your home. 

Through Faith Direct you can make all of your contributions to St. Bernadette automatically from your checking account or credit card – just as you may do now with your mortgage, household bills, and other monthly payments. This is a great way to simplify your giving – and it’s the most cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way for us to receive your gifts.         

I highly recommend the Faith Direct program. Please take a minute to enroll right now. You can use their simple, secure online enrollment form.

For more information, you can also visit the Faith Direct website, email info@faithdirect.net, or call their toll-free number, 866-507-8757, to speak with someone directly.

Thank you so much for considering eGiving to support our parish, and may God bless you and your loved ones!

In His Name,

Father Philip
