Help Our Sisters and Brothers Who Are Hungry

Thanksgiving Food Drive

Over 100 families, who ordinarily would have gone hungry on Thanksgiving Day, received Food Baskets due to the wonderful stewardship of our St. Bernadette Parish Family! Cans of vegetables, bags of stuffing and potatoes, apple cider and turkey (cards, of course!) were lovingly brought to our parish last weekend. We gave, not because we are rich, but because we know we have been blessed by God and this is our way of saying thank you to Him! How wonderful it is to be able to share with our brothers and sisters who are hungry. Thank you to those stewards who shared their time, sorting and assembling the food. A special thank you to our youth, who worked so hard with lifting those heavy boxes to help those who can't lift the way they can! Thank you to the children in our Parish School of Religion, for making such BEAUTIFUL Thanksgiving Cards to be given to each family! They loved them so much. Thank you to all who shared the food and treasure to make this truly a love-fest!

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.

  • Synod on the Family stressed both truth and love
    Last Month’s Synod on the Family was an attempt to “lend an ear to the rhythm of our time,” as Pope Francis put it. The synod was certainly “extraordinary” — it was “extraordinary” because it was a prequel to an “ordinary” synod that will take place next...

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!
