St. Bernard is part of the Fall River Diocese which includes Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands. We celebrate our diversity, yet we stand together as one. Together we strive to be holy. “Catholic” means “universal” — open to all people of all ethnics, of all races, of all economic levels. We are proud to be called Catholic. Our parish conducts various programs to serve you and our community. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have about our many activities.
