Directory of Ministries and Organizations

St. Bernard Women’s Guild was started in 1955 by request of the Bishop that every parish establish a woman’s organization.  Our objectives as an organization are to serve as a medium through which the women of St. Bernard may speak and act as a unit in the interest of the parish community and to further spiritual and material undertakings recommended to us by the Pastor or the Bishop.

We welcome all St. Bernard women to attend our meetings and events.  Meetings are held 6:30 p.m. in the church hall the first Tuesday of the month.  (No meetings in January, July and August)  Membership dues are $5.00 per year. 

New and prospective members are welcome and invited to attend any one of our monthly meetings.  Bring a friend or come alone and meet new friends.  Social time and refreshments follow all our meetings.  We look forward to your acquaintance!

Many thanks to the Women's Guild members and St. Bernard’s Parish Community for your continued support.  Your contributions and patronage have enabled us to serve the Lord and one another.  Let us share our fruit from this past year.
