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.


First Communion and Confirmation Dates Scheduled

The First Communion and Confirmation dates have been rescheduled for early in the Fall. In keeping with current COVID restrictions and with limited seating in the church, we have decided to schedule 3 dates for both First Communion and Confirmation. As it stands now, candidates will be seated with their families in an assigned row.  Maximum seating per row will accommodate approximately 5-7 adults plus candidate. No other seating will be available due to restrictions. We are hoping to have the ceremonies live streamed and will provide more information as these dates approach. The dates are detailed as follows:
