St. Bernard Catholic Church Parish Staff

Fr. Garrett K. McIntyre

Rev. Garrett McIntyre

 Deacon Stephen and I are on a mission trip with several college students in Alaska until June 30th. While there, we will be sharing the gospel, teaching, and providing the sacraments to a remote town who does not have the luxury of a regular priest. This mission trip also provides the opportunity for college students to gain experience and confidence in speaking about the gospel. It helps them to be new evangelizers for the Kingdom of Heaven. Please keep us and those to whom we will minister in your prayers while we are there. Also, be sure of our prayers for you. We're looking forward to sharing our experiences with you when we return.

Please continue to pray for our group on mission in Alakanuk, Alaska. Please also pray for all those we will be encountering along the way.

 As Fr. Stephen enters into his final week here at St. Bernard, I encourage each of you to thank him for his service here and wish him well in Melville. You are invited to a reception in his honor following the 11am mass next Sunday. Let us remember him and his new parish in the charity of our prayers. See you all next weekend.
