FREE Canna bulbs
We have dug up the beautiful red Canna bulbs from in front of the church again this year. You are welcome to take them home to store for the winter. Plant them in your garden in the spring to enjoy. Please bring a bag. Take what you like but remember they will each produce many more. They will be in the front entrance of church this weekend, November 23 & 24.
Anyone interested in donating to the Christmas Poinsettias please place donation with the names of those you would like us to pray for in an envelope and drop off at the rectory or in the collection basket at any Mass. It will be placed on the Altar to pray for and also will be placed in the bulletin closer to Christmas. Please marked envelope deceased or living.

Written by Michael A. Fimiani...As a member of St. Bernadette Parish Church Community I feel the need to speak out in regards to the many rumors circulating about the future of St. Bernadette Parish’s closing.
PLEASE THESE RUMORS ARE UNSUBSTANTIATED AND COULD POSSIBLY CAUSE UNDUE CONCERN AND ANGUISH FOR OUR PARISHIONERS.
First let me say St. Bernadette Church is a very big part of not only the Morris Cove Community but the Community as a whole. We provide meals and foods to those in need no matter where they reside. Our former convent is used as a Senior Center, bereavement groups, AAA and NA meeting, and other community needs.
Our Mass attendance is seeing an increase.
We offer 4 weekend Masses of which one is our popular 6:00 pm Mass Sunday Mass.
Bible Study is also offered and Exposition of The Blessed Sacrament, and Rosary.
The needs of our Spiritual being is first and foremost.
Our School has a Pre-K and grades 1-8 second to none.
We are proud to be the First Church to be named after St. Bernadette shortly after her canonization.
ST. BERNADETTE PARISH COMMUNITY AND SCHOOL ARE ALIVE AND WELL AND LOOK TO A BRIGHT FUTURE.
VIVA ST. BERNADETTE PARISH!
