Celebrating the Sacraments

Parishioners of St. Bernard of Clairvaux can participate in all three sacraments of initiation, baptism, Eucharist and confirmation, when they reach the appropriate age and/or have participated in sacramental preparation. Parishioners can partake in the celebration of the Eucharist at every Mass, and can participate in the sacrament of reconciliation, Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., or by appointment.

Parishioners of St. Bernard can also celebrate the sacrament of marriage in the church by contacting the parish office to secure a date and beginning the planning process. The reception of the anointing of the sick can be scheduled as well. Any parishioner interested in exploring more about vocations, please visit here
