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.
The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated at the Church of St. Bernard on the third Saturday of every month in Spanish at 12:00 pm and in English at 1:30 pm. We ask to please schedule the Baptism with two months in advance.
For more information please visit the Rectory, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
