Walking with Purpose

The Church of St. Bernard is forming a Walking with Purpose Catholic Bible Study Group. This group encourages women to have a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Walking with purpose endeavors to meet women where they are, giving them practical Biblical teaching that is consistent with Church doctrine and uses the Catechism of the Catholic Church as an additional source. Women report that after participating in this program they are more satisfied with their faith, 97% report that their prayer life is improved and 97% say their relationship with Christ is stronger. These meetings will be conducted in English. If you are interested in this group please see Father Morris after Mass.

March for Life

The annual Pilgrimage/March for Life will be on Friday, January 19, 2018, marking the 45th anniversary of the legalization of abortion in our land through the tragic Roe v. Wade decision.  This year, more than 40 buses from our Archdiocese will again take part by travelling to Washington, D.C. They will gather with hundreds of thousands from across the nation to pray and publicly witness so that laws may be changed to protect all human life, and to pray for healing for our nation as well as those wounded by abortion. If you are not able to make the trip, please consider making a donation to sponsor someone else to attend. For further information please contact Gerald Yeung at 914-837-7008
