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!
