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

Through Mary, To Jesus

Beginning in February
All Parishioners Welcome!


  Through Mary, To Jesus
    A Marian Consecration

      Fr. Michael Gaitley’s Retreat—
   33 Days to Morning Glory

When:  Weekly evening meetings on Thursdays beginning February 21st
thru March 21st
Where:  Upper Room in the Parish Office 

Q. What is a Marian Consecration? A longstanding Catholic tradition-simply, Marian consecration  is a deepening of our devotion to and
relationship with Jesus through Our lady.

Q. Who is Father Michael Gaitley? Fr. Gaitley, MIC, is Director of Formation for the Marian Missionaries of Divine Mercy in Stockton, Massachusetts and bestselling author.  He created an updated version of Louis de Montfort’s 17th century consecration to Mary.  Gaitley’s book, “33 Days to Morning Glory” highlights the lives and teachings of four great Marian saints and offers 33 days of “spiritual reading and prayerful pondering” for the journey to consecration. This book and four others Fr. Gaitley has written are now the basis for small group parish retreat programs.

Q. What happens at the meetings?  Participants will receive “33 Days to Morning Glory” book and read a chapter of the book every week. At the meetings,  a short DVD presentation on the respective weekly reading is followed by discussion, reflection, and prayer.  After “33 days” of preparation, prayers, spiritual reading and pondering, participants will be consecrated to Mary through Jesus on a Marian feast day.



In anticipation of our 70th anniversary, please consider this trip to Lourdes and the convent where St. Bernadette is buried.
