St. Bernard Clairvaux Church




Mission Statement

Saint Bernard Parish is a Eucharistic community, nurtured by Sacraments and Scripture, which promotes gospel values and engages in the evangelizing mission of Jesus Christ. We dedicate ourselves to protecting life at every state and to embrace good stewardship of our time, talent, and treasure in support of our parish ministries. We seek to foster in our members a strong family life, lifelong faith formation, commitment to service, peace, and justice advocacy, respect for diversity and a spirit of harmony and reconciliation. 



Great News!

We have reached our goal and our parish will now receive all dollars raised to fund parish initiatives.  In essence, your support of the ACA allows our parish to utilize funding on other initiatives such as Religious Education and Youth Ministry.

Of course, your weekly support of our parish is crucial and you are encouraged to continue to share your generosity with our parish primarily through the Sunday collection.  But it is also important to remember that the Church extends far beyond the walls of our beautiful church and great parish.

To date, only 9.5% of our parishioners have made a pledge.  Imagine if every family – nearly 1,600 – made a gift!!!  Remember no gift is too small or too large!

Please be as generous as you can when you participate in the 

Annual Catholic Appeal

Thank You!     Thank You!      Thank You!
