Feast day of our parish patron, St. Bernard

Thursday of this week is the feast day of our parish patron, St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1091— 1153).

He was a Cistercian monk and founder of monasteries in Europe. He was a very prominent person in the church of the 12th century.

When this parish was established in 1924, Archbishop John J. Cantwell placed it under the patronage of St. Bernard.

I write you to join us in celebrating the feast of St. Bernard by attending the luau next Saturday in the volleyball court.

Come and enjoy good food, music and entertainment.

All proceeds will go to parish facility improvements.

I also invite you to the 5 p.m. Mass that same day. We will be honoring our patron saint, Bernard.
