Celebration of our patron saint and the
92nd anniversary of St. Bernard Church

Interview with Bishop Joseph Sartoris

Bishop Joseph Sartoris, former San Pedro Region auxiliary bishop, sits down with us and talks about his time as an associate priest at St. Bernard from 1966 to 1970. He speaks about Vatican II, the first Mass celebrated in the new church, and he recalls fond memories of his time ministering to the parish's families and youth.


The celebration continues

Our regular Mother of Perpetual Help Mass and Novena will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by Mass at 7 p.m. on Aug. 17. This Mass will honor our Filipino community and their contributions to St. Bernard Parish. After Mass, some light refreshments will be served in front of the church.

Our Latino Community will host a healing Mass at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 19. Light refreshments will follow the Mass in front of the church.

Aug. 20 is the feast day of St. Bernard. Our whole community is invited to celebrate our patron at the 5 p.m. Mass. A Luau Dinner follows.

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
Sunday, August 21, 2016

By Father Perry D. Leiker, pastor

"Jesus is giving us a recipe for a life of peace, a life of goodness, a life of communion," Father Perry tells us in his homily for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time. "And he knows that we can't get it if we won't really try, if we just attempt it. But he says, if you strive for it, if you make it No. 1 and say, I'll do it, I'll do whatever it takes, we'll begin to find that life growing within us."
