The Parish Library is now open after the 10AM and 11:30AM Sunday Masses. Stop by to see our collection of Christian books, DVDs, CDs, and magazines. We also have a children's section.

We are growing! And we need you! We just completed a wonderful year of faith formation with over 90 children and their families. Three of our classrooms this past year were at capacity. We don't want to turn any children away this year, so we need new volunteers! The success of the Faith Formation of your children is due to the generosity and dedication of volunteers. These volunteers, who become Catechists, classroom aides, or program aides, share their faith and love for Jesus. As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well!! As one long-time catechist put it, "I learn so much from the children!" We provide you with training, materials, and support. Classes begin September 19 and meet weekly on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. If interested, or for more information, contact Jill Moore at or call 818.340.1440.


Thank you to all of our parishioners who have donated to our Called to Renew campaign so far. We did it and hit over $1M in pledges! With only a couple of weeks left in the campaign, I encourage those who haven't turned in their pledge cards or donated to the campaign to please consider it. Pledge cards can be turned into our Parish Office or through the collection baskets at Mass. Information and pledge cards are available in our office or at the back of the church. If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Barkes at 747.888.9758 or Thank you St Bernardine parishioners!
