Parish

parishSt. Bernard's School is part of St. Patrick's Parish.  

Father Mike Pullar, our parish priest, regularly joins us at St. Bernard's, to celebrate Eucharist or simply to visit. We also welcome Father Novi to join our celebrations.

Sacramental Program: The parish supports all the students in our CREW schools in their family groups with the preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. A parish celebration is held at St. Patrick's Church, Our Lady's Church or our school chapel to celebrate the sacraments. 


FrMikeSt.Bernard's Chapel:
 
At St. Bernard's, the Eucharist is celebrated in our chapel on Fridays. If the priests are unable to attend, the staff lead liturgies with the students.  An invitation is always extended to our families to join in these celebrations, which are a highlight for parents and grandparents.  

Involvement in the Parish:  Out reach in the community is achieved when classes from Grades 3-6 visit Illoura Aged Care Facility each month, to join with the residents in the celebration of Eucharist. 

St. Vincent de Paul: Our support of St. Vincent de Paul manifests with the Feast of the Sacred Heart, when our families generously support our parish with the collection of food items and blankets for the winter appeal.  The start of Advent each year sees our families again donate to help St. Vincent de Paul support needy families at Christmas.
