Needlework with heart

Come celebrate our co-patron’s feast day this Saturday

All are invited to join us on Saturday, May 21, to celebrate our parish co-patron, St. Bernardine of Siena, who has been called the “Apostle of Italy.” His feast day is actually the day before, but we will honor him at the 5:00 Mass in St. Bernardine Church and then continue the celebration with picnic food and refreshments in Fearon Hall.

The feast will also feature fun raffles for various prizes including the Big Cash Raffle, which will pay out winnings of $2,500, and $1,250 and three $500 prizes. Raffle tickets will be sold after Masses at both churches, or click the button below to get your Big Cash Raffle tickets now.
