St. Bernadette School recognizes the parents as the primary educators of their children in the area of spiritual development.

Patrick Lewis First Mass

  • We support, encourage and expect all Catholic students to participate in Sunday Mass and the Church’s sacraments.
  • We provide the children with a daily religion class; we also provide opportunities for daily prayer, regular celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and a weekly celebration of the Eucharist. These do not take the place of Sunday Mass.
  • Children are prepared for and receive sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation to enable them to participate in the sacramental life of the Church.
  • Catholic children may be trained as altar servers for rising 5th graders and older.
  • We promote the Christian values of integrity, honesty, self-discipline, modesty, faith, hope, and charity, not only in the daily religion classes, but also throughout the curriculum.
