St. Bernard Catholic Church Parish Staff

Fr. Garrett K. McIntyre

Rev. Garrett McIntyre

 For the past 170 years, the people of Breaux Bridge have asked for the intercession of their home parish patron, St. Bernard of Clairvaux. We celebrate his feast today by honoring him for his care for us and asking his continued guidance as we journey closer to heavenly glory. He was (and is!) a man in love with Jesus and His Mother. As we strive to be committed and faithful Catholics in the modern world, we continue to call upon him for help. He is bound to us in a particular way to help us know that same type of love. Last weekend saw great success in the St. Bernard family day. The middle school youth group reached its goal to get the Edge program off the ground thanks to so many generous benefactors and willing participants. The various ministries of the parish were able to make contact with other parishioners and get the word out about what they provide in the parish. It was an all around fun day. There are many great things happening in St. Bernard parish, thanks to the intercession of our patron and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We invite you to be involved and invest in this community in which many of your ancestors invested wholeheartedly nearly two centuries ago. May St. Bernard of Clairvaux continue to lead us closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.   St. Bernard of Clairvaux, pray for us!
