Suggestions for 2014

  • Spend more time with members of our family especially on Sunday.
  • Set aside time to pray as a family.
  • Reclaim Sunday as “the Lord’s Day” and as a day for families to celebrate Mass together.
  • Reach out to those in our families who are hurt.

Remember in Prayer

Please remember in prayer, Francis Offia, a New Orleans Seminarian discerning God’s will who is in the seminary. Also pray that whomever is being called by God from our parish to consider a vocation to Priesthood, Diaconate or Religious Life will have the support and encouragement to respond with an open and generous heart.

Adoration Chapel

The Deanery Adoration Chapel located at OLPS invites you to come spend a little time with the Lord in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Come for a few minutes or consider becoming a “committed adorer” for a particular hour. The Chapel has exposition of the Blessed Sacrament Mon-Fri, 6:00a.m. till 9:00p.m., and is open for prayer and meditation (no exposition) Sat-Sun from 6:00a.m. till 6:00p.m. For more information call 271-3441.

Remember that Adoration is available before daily Mass at St. Bernard, so if you can’t make it to Chalmette just come to St. Bernard.  

Pumpkin Patch

If you worked the Pumpkin Patch this and are tired there is a good reason.  We had 2,457 kids and 683 adults go through the Patch this year.  We brought in approximately $21,500 and our expenses were approximately $11,500 giving us a profit of about $10,000.  We don’t have the exact totals yet and we will let you know the total profit when all expenses are turned in.  Thank you all for your help in making this year’s Pumpkin Patch a success.  Rest up for next year.

Our Mission

Living out the Christ’s mission and His church St. Bernard Catholic Church is united in faith, hope and love, and worships God through the celebration of Sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist.  Through prayer and the grace and power of the Holy Spirit we are inspired and motivated to live our lives based on Scriptural teaching, sacred tradition, and Catholic principles to serve the community by being a witness for Jesus Christ and His unconditional love for us all.  As Christ loved His spouse, the Church, so do we, through our examples of worship, prayer, and service, strive to pass along our faith in the Holy Trinity to our families, and to all in our community, for the continuance and growth of our Church.
