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

On Thursday, March 1, at 7:00PM
, in the Parish Library, we’ll discuss The Center of the World by Jacqueline Sheehan. An American woman finds herself saving the life of a Guatemalan orphan for whom she feels love & responsibility. Some of the haunting questions are, “When do you follow your own instincts? Whose right is it to reveal a secret that has life-changing aspects for all the members of a family? How does a family reclaim its relationships?”
