Advent Reconciliation Monday, December 15th


During Advent we will hear John the Baptist call us  to “Prepare the Way of the Lord.”  The best way for us to prepare the Way of the Lord and prepare for Christmas is to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Monday, December 15th, is Advent ReconciliationMonday throughout the Archdiocese of New York. All parishes will be providing the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the faithful from4:00pm to 8:00pm. Confessions will be heard at the Church of St. Bernard on Monday, December 15th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm, in place of  our Annual Advent Penance Service.


Giving Tree


Today, you will be able to select a Christmas ornament from the Giving Tree to purchase a gift for someone in need. Please feel free to take a tag from the Giving Tree and return your wrapped gift with the tag as a label and place it under the tree no later than Sunday, December 21st.

All the Devotional Groups and the Cursillistas of the Church of St. Bernard invite everyone to the Christmas Novena from Monday, December 15 to Tuesday, December 23 at 7:15 pm in the Chapel Hall. We hope to share with you the manger (on some days we will have the Girl Scouts and some of our youth representing the Virgin Mary and Joseph). We will also have Christmas music, refreshments and more.
