Pastoral 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.

Funeral Hospitality

Free hospitality service to any family who has a funeral service at the Church. We can accommodate most situations. Many grieving families want a simple dessert with coffee or a luncheon/dinner for the family and friends. We host a wonderful, cheerful community gathering of friends and family to celebrate the life of the loved one.

Natural Family Planning

Modern Natural Family Planning is 100% natural and up to 99% effective as a family planning method. You will learn how NFP benefits a couple’s relationship, one indicator of which is the nearly non-existent divorce rate among NFP-practicing couples. The diocese has NFP instructors available in a variety of methods.
