  • Today at the 9:30 a.m. Mass we have our principal celebration of Catholic Schools Week. A Catholic education is a advantage for life. From 1941 to the present, St. Bernard School has given such an education to a great number of young people. I commend the parents of the present students for their commitment and sacrifice to ensure that their children receive a Catholic faith oriented education. Our thanks to Lauren Boadt, the principal; Sister Joan Maga and all the faculty and staff for their dedication. For information on our parish school, please call the school office at (323) 256-4989.

  • Thursday of this week is the feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple. It is the day when candles for use in the liturgy and at home are blessed. Candles will be blessed at the 8 a.m. Mass and will be available for purchase after Mass and at the church office.

  • Friday of this week is the feast of St. Blaise. The traditional blessing of the throats will be offered at the 8 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Masses.

    I regret that many of you did not get our 2005 St. Bernard Church calendar.

    We received only half the usual number, and I expected that we would be receiving more. I have now found out that our calendar sponsor this year reduced the order. I was unaware of this and will try to see that next year we will receive a sufficient number.
