Weekly Update December 4th to 8th

Good Evening,

Advent is a very beautiful season filled with joy and expectation. It begins today and it starts a new liturgical year for the Christian community. We are all invited by the Lord to get involved in the spirit and graces of this season. .    God grant you the peace and joy of this holy season. Amen.

St. Bernadette Angel Tree and Food Drive 2017 – Once again this year, we will be helping families in our own community. We are asking families to pick an angel from our Christmas tree and bring a gift back to school unwrapped. We are also asking for non-perishable items to support our food drive.  This initiative has always been a huge success and we are looking for the same success this year!  The program ends December 6th.


Our annual Christmas Turkey Dinner is just around the corner.  It will be on Tuesday, December 12th.  We are asking each student to please contribute $2.00 for the meal:  Christmas TurkeyDinner
