One of the more important reasons for the success of St Bernadette Church and School is the generosity of its parishioners. God has given each of us our own special gifts and talents. The best way for us to praise the Lord is to share these gifts by giving back to our church and school. The dedication and devotion of our parishioners enable our parish to thrive. If you have time or a talent that you wish to share, we would love to hear from you!
