St. Bernadette Parish Renewal

The third meeting of the St Bernadette Parish Renewal committee was held on Monday, December 13th. A total of 15 parishioners attended. 

This continues “the process at arriving, with all the parishioners, at a common vision for the nature and direction of the life of the parish. With this vision clearly articulated this group will set in motion the establishment of a Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) by June 2022” ( Archbishop A. Legatt, Pastoral letter to the Faithful of the Parish of St. Bernadette, Dec. 10th, 2021).

The goal of this last meeting was to examine 5 of the 7 key elements in a parish: Evangelization Worship, the Word, Community, and Service. Participants gathered in 5 separate groups to discuss and record the parish’s strengths and weaknesses according to each element.   This kind of discussion and feedback is one step in attaining a clearer sense of where the parish is at and where our challenges lie. 

The following parishioners have volunteered to have their names published and be available for conversations on ideas for a common vision : Janice Bernardin, Marcel Rainville.

On January 10th, the committee held its 4th meeting. Attendees were divided in 2 groups; one to start the process of producing a draft prayer specifically for our Parish and the other to develop 2 survey questions that will be distributed to all parish members in the upcoming weeks

Please stay tuned for e new and exciting next steps on our journey toward Parish renewal. We are all invited to pray for our parish community and for those tasked with a particular leadership role.  Please consider sharing your gift of time, interest and effort to render our parish evermore alive and life-giving.

May God bless us all!
