Registration of New Parishioners

The Church of St. Bernard extends a warm welcome to those who have recently started worshipping the Lord with us. Often people attend Mass at a parish for months or sometimes years, but never officially register. Registering at St. Bernard’s Church is the expression of your commitment to being part of our parish family. Being a registered parishioner also makes the process much simpler when it is time for receiving sacraments, registering for religious education, sponsoring a sacrament recipient and even planning funerals.  New parishioners are welcome to register at the Rectory during office hours, Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
