Dear Community of St. Bernard,
Each year we share our faith and gifts with our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world on Mission Sunday. The weekend of August 12/13 we welcome Fr. Fernando Caindec from the Diocese of Sarogon, Philippines. He will share how the faith is enriched and vocations supported in their diocese with our help.
A reminder that our Annual Parish Picnic will be held at Firestone Metro Park (off of Harrington Rd.) on the Feast Day of St. Bernard, Sunday, August 20th. A bilingual Mass will be celebrated at 12:00 at the Park (NO NOON MASS IN THE CHURCH nor COFFEE AND DONUT HOUR). Hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages will be provided. Please bring a side dish to share, a folding chair for the Mass, and any outdoor games.
I also invite you to download our weekly bulletin during these summer months for my message to our regulars and our visitors. Along with the parish staff, we hope this is a relaxing and enjoyable summer for you and your family.
If traveling be open to the presence of Christ in those you meet, visit a local parish church, attend a Sunday Mass, bring back a bulletin, and come home safely.
