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.

Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary is an association of Catholic laity who serve the Church on a voluntary basis. It was founded in Dublin, Ireland, as a Roman Catholic Marian Movement by layman Frank Duff. Today between active and auxiliary (praying) members there are over 3 million members worldwide making it the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church.
The main apostolate of the Legion consists in activities directed towards all men and women, young and old, rich and poor as well as people from the margins of society and towards non- Catholics. The members of the Legion are primarily engaged in the performance of the Spiritual Works of Mercy.
