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.

Upcoming News & Events

 

 

 

Christmas is upon us and being a parish family always concerned and willing to help others, we are once again planning to give gift cards to the parishes we currently support. Last year, the recipients embraced this program enabling them to purchase what they wished for or needed. The parishes we will support are Blessed Trinity, LaSagrada, and St. Stephen, our sister parish. When donating gift cards, please keep in mind their neighborhood. After reaching out to each parish, Dave’s, Giant Eagle, Marcs, Target and Walmart are beneficial to them.  

We ask for your donations by December 10th. Cash donations are always appreciated and will be used to purchase gift cards through our gift card program, which benefits our school. Donations can be dropped off at the Parish Office.

The donations surpassed our greatest expectations last year and these parishes.  It was overwhelming!

May God continue to bless our church and our programs as we reach out remembering the less fortunate with our generous hearts. God bless!
