Did you know that one of the three main Roles of our Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is to listen to the needs of our Parish Congregation. We would love to hear from you; and are currently in the process of expanding our communication outlets to make it easier for you to communicate. In the meantime, if you have any comments/questions/concerns, please talk to one of our PPC members, or jot a note to us at PPC and leave it at the church office or in the collection plate. Or email us at

Together we can do great things for our Parish.

Heavenly Father, thank you for gathering us together as St. Bernadette Parish. We come before you, conscious of our failings, united in Your name and longing for your blessing.

Lord Jesus, grant us wisdom and forgiveness. Teach us to grow, love, share, and renew our lives. Help us to learn from the past and enter confidently into the future. Help us to cherish, value and respect one another as the Body of Christ.

Holy Spirit, inspire us to offer our gifts and talents where needed. Help us to become flames of faith, hope and love, in our families, in our communities, and in our workplaces. Help us to tend to the needy and the sick, to welcome the stranger and the outcast. 

Holy Trinity, guide us as we discern Your will for the spiritual renewal and growth of our parish. Come to us, remain with us, and enlighten our path. You desire justice for all; enable us to uphold the rights of others.  Through patience, love, and true charity lead us forward in Your Light.


St. Bernadette, pray for us. St. Boniface, pray for us. All Holy men and women, pray for us.
