Mommy and Me Holy Hour is a new ministry for mothers (and fathers) to introduce their little ones to Eucharistic Adoration.  You are encouraged to bring the children to the Adoration Chapel anytime from 9:30am to 10:30am on Thursdays.  Don't worry about disturbing the appointed adorers.  They are aware and welcome the children.  For information, call Courtney Pourciau at 332-2904.

St. Bernard Church renovations are underway!  Mass is being held in the Borel Center until renovations are complete.  Thanks to all of you for your patience during this temporary inconvenience.

Meet our Pastor

Rev. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

 

"But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you." - Jn 16:13-14

 In this Sunday's Gospel Jesus illuminates the mystery of the Trinity by telling his disciples that the Holy Spirit will guide them to the truth. Jesus indicates that the Holy Spirit shares what is his and he shares what is the Father's. Through centuries of reflection and theological discussion, the church slowly came to perceive the mystery of the Trinity as three persons in one God.    While the Father is not the Son, and the Son is not the Holy Spirit,  and  the  Holy Spirit  is not  the  Father, all are God.

 Have a great week.
