      St. Bernard Church Will Reopen Friday, July 29th!


With your continued financial support and a generous gift from the estate of Arline Ramsdell, we have added many enhancements to our beautiful Church including completing the column capitals with brilliant gold, finishing the arch interiors, gold organ pipes with cleaned and varnished choir loft including new American and Vatican flags, and restored paintings on the south side. The stained glass windows are still in restoration and will be added in the next several weeks. Outside, the new front deck allowed the front drainage problem to be fixed and handicapped wrought iron railings are now being fabricated that are ADA compliant which will be installed in about 6 weeks at which time the temporary fencing will be removed. Concrete work will be continuing to replace the Parish Center east side stairs from School Street as well as the sidewalk and wall between the Church rear and the Parish Center.

Thank you for your generosity to make all this happen!
