Religious Education Has Begun

Our St. Bernadette Parish Family Religious Education Classes have started! We are so happy to hear the sounds of Famiies bringing their young people to Class to learn more about Jesus and our wonderful Faith! Your laughter, joy and excitement fill our halls and classrooms! Your joy and your example being such good parents spurs all of us on to be more like Jesus  too!

Here's a list of when different classes meet:

Sunday: Edge (for seventh and eighth graders), and Confirmation Preparation Class ( High School)

Monday: grades Pk-3,4 through 6 and even a Special Sacraments Class (call for details)

Tuesday: grades 1 and 2

If you are new to the area, we would love you to bring your child to learn about Jesus here at St. Bernadette Parish!

Simply call us at the Parish Office: 336-9956. We will do the rest!

Can't wait to hear from you.

 
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.

CRHP is a process designed to bring members of a parish together in Christ. CRHP is an effective spiritual renewal that calls together members of our parish to experience personal conversion and Christian community within the environment of St. Bernadette Catholic Church.

The uniqueness of CRHP is in its continuation. Participants are usually so inspired, so renewed, so uplifted, that they're anxious to share their faith experience with others from their parish. Retreatants have the opportunity to continue their faith formation following the weekend retreat and many return this gift to the next group of retreatants called to renewal. During this formation time, even greater spiritual growth occurs. This transition between attending a weekend and leading a weekend takes place over a 4 to 6 month formation period.

Draw near to God, and God will draw near to you…” James 4:8

What CRHP is not:

It's not a silent retreat, public confession, parish ministry, emotional cult or clique.

What happens during the weekend?

Come prepared to have fun and renew your heart.

During the weekend, you will listen to a number of stewards share a personal witness to the power of Jesus Christ in their lives. Small group discussions follow each presentation. Most in-depth discussions take place amongst your own table. You'll be free to share as much or as little as you feel comfortable.

There will be readings from Scripture, time for prayer, and time set aside for personal reflection. You and your needs will always be respected. The sharing dialogue is stimulated in a liturgical, Scriptural, and prayerful atmosphere.

Sacraments are an integral part of the weekend. There will be an opportunity to go to Confession and the weekend will conclude with a CRHP Mass. All experiences shared on the weekend are confidential: "What happens in CRHP, stays in CRHP!"

The FINE print:

The weekend begins at St. Bernadette on Saturday morning at 7 AM and ends on Sunday afternoon, approximately 4 PM.

We all spend the night and all delicious meals and snacks are provided. If you have a special dietary requirement, please let us know when you register and every attempt will be made to accommodate your needs.

Sleeping accommodations (comfy air mattresses) are provided. We recommend you bring pillows, queen-sized sheets and blankets, and personal items (i.e., razors, toothpaste, etc.).

The entire weekend is informal. Comfortable, casual attire is preferred.

Who Can Participate?

The program is designed to help strengthen our Parish, so every member over 21 years old is invited and encouraged to attend a weekend. Christ Renews His Parish is for ANYONE seeking spiritual renwal. You do not have to be a spiritual person or a member of St. Bernadette Parish to attend the retreat. In fact, many people attend because they are not as spiritual as they would like. Many attend because they feel something is missing from their lives. CRHP is an excellent opportunity for those who have stopped attending Mass or lost interest in the Church to reconnect with the Parish Family. ALL will be welcomed and ALL will receive unconditional acceptance.

What about the cost?

Can you afford this weekend? Absolutely “YES!”

There is no cost, as this is our gift to you. If you feel inclined, donations are accepted at the end of the weekend.

The next Christ Renews His Parish weekends will be:

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!
