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

The CPA Group (Christ-Present-In-Action) is sponsoring a time for serving the needy in our metropolitan area. The theme for this year is ‘WHAT MATTERS TO GOD?” People who are hungry, without shelter, without clothing, who are ill and waiting for the Lord to call them home, etc. are WHAT MATTERS TO GOD. On the other hand, people who are able to lend a hand, who can pack a food bag or make a sandwich, who can clean a room or visit with those who have no one, etc. these folks are WHAT MATTERS TO GOD too. So, ask yourself: “IS WHAT MATTERS TO GOD ALSO WHAT MATTERS TO ME?”

Scripture Study

Just who is this “disciple whom Jesus loved?”  Is the Apostle John the same as the author of the Gospel of John, or is the writer someone different?
Although written at the time of the early Christian Community, what does the Gospel of John have to say to us today?

Scripture Sessions start on Mondays at 7:00 PM and repeated again on Tuesday mornings, at 9:30 AM. September 9 and 10 are the beginning sessions.  Every adult is invited – parishioners, friends, relatives! No fee – notes provided – Just bring a Bible!
