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.

Q: What will I do at the retreat?

A:  The retreat will include Eucharistic Adoration, the Sacraments, inspiring talks, personal testimonies, small group discussions, confession, Mass, reflection, prayer, fellowship, and more.

Q: Can I attend only one session or day of the retreat?

A: Since each session builds from the previous session, we kindly ask that you attend for the entirety of the retreat in order to get the full experience.

Q: Why is the retreat a whole weekend?

A: The retreat is an entire weekend because it takes a while to decompress from the hustle and bustle of regular life and calm our hearts and minds for this kind of encounter. There is no such thing as a “quick fix” in our relationship with Jesus. Also, an entire weekend is a sign of our commitment to Christ. He will not disappoint! “At the end, first session retreatants said they would gladly have stayed longer and didn’t want to leave!”

Join us for a spiritually uplifting experience!

Registration forms are available at the Parish Office or register below. The retreat will begin on Friday evening, run throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday, and conclude with a final session on Monday evening.
