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


Mission Statement

As parishioners of St. Bernadette, we commit ourselves to refresh our participation of Liturgy through attentive listening to God's Word, in raising our voices in prayer and song, and in reverent reception of the Body and Blood of Christ. We pledge to work for justice for those inside and outside of our boundaries and to be instruments of healing in our families and in our community.

Welcome Back to the (renovated) Church!

Registration is available at the link below or in the Parish Bulletin. Be sure to check which session, morning or evening, you would like! Please print and return the registration to the Parish Office.

“Where the Hell is God?” is the question many ask in their experience of face of tragedy and loss. Father Leonard, a Jesuit, asks the same through his own family experience in suffering and heartbreak. He deals with “How useful is prayer in the long run?  Is suffering suppose to make us better persons, closer to God?  How do you continue loving God in the face of loss? Does God cause pain? Who is this God anyway?” etc. Very readable, down-to-earth and a totally honest, helpful approach.
