Bernadette Headlines!

Dear Friends of St. Bernadette,

     In light of recent events and the growing concern of violence in our ever shrinking world, it can be difficult to make sense of how we as Catholics should respond.

     Threats made against the Church and Christians everywhere can make even the most devout feel vulnerable at times. We, as followers of Christ, must first look to Christ's teachings as our guide. How do we balance compassion, ministry, safety, and security? We are not called to live in fear, but through faith in the Living God. Be assured, St. Bernadette Parish, along with other area parishes, has taken a proactive approach, seeking guidance from subject matter experts, to ensure the safety and security of our parish family and guests.

     Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, pleaded: "Please, no armored doors in the Church, everything open...", following the tragic events in Paris in 2015 which led to a movement to want to restrict access to the Church. The Holy Father continued, "We must not surrender to the idea that we must apply this way of thinking to every aspect of our lives; to do so the Church would be terrible". We must never lose sight of our mission of inclusion of all those who seek the Faith. However, we must also be prepared to respond to concerns and emergencies ranging from needing assistance in the parking lot, a medical response, a lost child, all the way to the unthinkable possibility of an act of violence. 

     We at St. Bernadette are an inclusive and open parish who welcome people of any faith and background into the loving arms of Christ. We ask you, our St. Bernadette Parish Family, to help us in that regard. However, if you see something that causes you concern from a safety, security perspective, please notify a Priest, an Usher, or a Parish staff member. and pray, please pray, for those in Orlando and elsewhere who are affected by the violence and strife in our world, that they will come to know Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

                                                                          Sincerely in Christ, 

 

                                                                          Father Victor Ulto

 

We pray for Father Jacques Hamel, who died while saying Mass, in Rouens, France, on July 26. The newest martyr for the Lord Jesus.

FULFILLING OUR PROMISE Capital Campaign:

     Thank you, thank you, thank you, good stewards! The Fulfilling Our Promise Capital Campaign total, as of June 28, 2016,  is:

$1, 712,514.10 ! That's one million, seven hundred and twelve thousand, five hundred fourteen dollars and ten cents ! 

Additionally, we have sent our Diocese a total of $414,990.96 which represents the cash payments, to date, that we have given to the Campaign. This amount had been used toward principal payment on our loan.

What a generous, loving parish we have! How aware we are, as good stewards, that all we have is from God, including our parish. We joyfully receive St. Bernadette as His gift to us, and we share our time, talent and treasure so that our St. Bernadette Parish may continue Jesus' love and mercy for those not even born yet. Yes, as our dear Monsignor Saporito reminded us often, we are planting trees under whose shadow we may never sit!

If you haven't yet made a pledge, please take the time to do so!

God bless you for doing your part to "Fulfill Our Promise"!
