Sacrament of Marriage

If you are thinking about marriage, please contact the Rectory at least six months before the wedding date to set-up an appointment.

Registration of New Parishioners

welcomeThe 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. 

Religious Education Program

Please stop by the Religious Education office to register your child along with their Baptism and First Communion certificate for new students. Register your child as soon as possible, space in our program is limited.
For more information please call the Religious Ed. office at 914-949-2111 Ext. 20.
