Thanksgiving Food Drive

Please take a food item, or two or three !!, from the Boards at the entrance of the Church.

Return the food item(s) when you come to Mass during the weekend of November 22-23. That's THIS weekend! (If you need to, you can bring the food items to the Church before that).

You can purchase a turkey card from Publix (where shopping is a pleasure) and return the card to us, as well. No live turkeys, PLEASE!

Thank you, good stewards of St. Bernadette Parish Family!

CRHP

What is “Christ Renews His Parish”?

Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP, pronounced "Chirp") is a spiritual renewal weekend designed to help individuals grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and with others in our faith community. It is an excellent opportunity for Catholics to renew their understanding of the basic beliefs and traditions of our faith, while, at the same time, CRHP is open to all believers in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

 

To learn more about "Christ Renews His Parish" (CRHP), click on FAITH AND FORMATION/EDUCATION at top of this page, and then click on "CRHP".

You will be happy that you did!

Current Reflection

 

 

God has certainly blessed us with Pope Francis! He is wise, insightful and a good teacher: all these gifts given by the Holy Spirit. Recently, in one his addresses, Pope Francis had five tips for parishes. I share them with you now:
1. DON 'T be like a Custom's Office. It is not any parish's place to bar entry into our Church, for whatever reason. We should not close doors for people.
2.  DON'T  be Tarantulas. Pope Francis says that when people come into our Church and Office, they should feel like they are entering their mother's home, and not into a den of tarantulas who sting, bite and suck life.
3.  DO put those who are "distant" first. Those that come only on major feasts, such as Christmas and Easter, those that come  to our parish only for baptisms, weddings and funerals. These brothers and sisters of ours should be treated as our FIRST priority, not like a last priority. Otherwise, why will they become regulars?
4.  DO get the Laity involved. Parishes do not belong to priests or the parish office: they belong to EVERYONE.
5. DON'T Gossip or cause division. Knowing we are not exempt from ordinary, sinful human behavior, we can examine our part in making our parish a place of unity and communion or creating division.
Pope Francis says it best: "Let each one ask him- or herself today 'do I increase harmony in my family, in my parish, in my community or am I a gossip? Am I a cause of division or embarrassment? ...Gossip does harm! Gossip wounds. Before Christians open their mouths to gossip, they should bite their tongue! To bite one's tongue: this does us good because the tongue swells and can no longer speak, cannot gossip. Am I humble enough to patiently stitch up, through sacrifice, the open wounds in communion?".
St Bernadette Parish is a parish we are all proud of. Let us never, however, cease to make it look, sound and feel more like our head and brother, Jesus!
