Retire Fund for Religious Collection Next Week



Next weekend our parishes are conducting the annual collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious that benefits some 34,000 senior sisters, brothers, and religious order priests. The annual collection is an opportunity for each of us to give thanks to the Lord for our senior religious.


Welcome to the Church of St. Bernard Website. May God Bless you!

We are a multicultural Roman Catholic Parish dedicated to serving the spiritual needs of God’s people in White Plains and beyond.
