A men's ACTS Retreat is being held on November 11-14. This retreat will be a great way to grow in faith and to get to know other men in the parish. For information, go to Parish Life on the parish website and click on "Group and Organizations" which will lead you to the link for "ACTS."


The ChristLife series has 3 different courses. The first course is "Discovering Christ," which was offered at St. Bernard's this past fall. The next series is called "Following Christ," and is about living a full Christian life. Topics presented include prayer, the Bible, sacraments, the obstacles and temptations Christians face and the gift of the Holy Spirit. The third series is entitled "Sharing Christ," and teaches participants how to effectively share their faith. The entire series is endorsed by our Pastor, Msgr. Gaalaas, as well as our Parish Council and staff.

The format for each session includes a thought-provoking presentation followed by small group discussion, which is facilitated by a trained volunteer.  

Following Christ will begin on Wednesday, February 9th at 7:00 p.m. All sessions will be in person.
