Hospitality Ministries

As a parishioner of St. Bernadette, you will find there are many opportunities to learn, to grow, and to celebrate. Whether you are called to serve the hungry and downtrodden, or minister to the sick, or serve on a board or council, or teach young people, or study scripture, or greet others coming to mass, St. Bernadette offers many ways to return our God-given gifts to our Lord who has given us so much.
