  • FYI RE: Mass Resumption: 
    As of this writing, the Bishops of Minnesota announced the resumptions of the public celebrations of the Mass, permitting public Masses of no more than 1/3 capacity beginning May 26.  Our cluster of St. Bernard/St. Bridget will not open May 26.  Here at St. Bernard’s and St. Bridget’s it will take time to set up the proper protocols to ensure everyone’s safety.  The Bishops have been working on a plan to re-open but with directives that will seriously need to be followed.  We are studying these plans to prepare for the resumption of public Masses.  I ask for your patience.
    Until then, for the foreseeable future we will continue to tape the Sunday Mass and put it on this website so you may pray with and for one another.
    We will keep you informed via Flocknote email & text, Facebook and this website, where the bulletin is  found electronically.  Other announcements / notices will also be put on the website.
    When the time comes that we believe our cluster is ready, we will begin public celebrations.  It will take all our staff, our ministers and all of you to ensure that these directives and protocols are carried out effectively.  Seriously, we need to follow these guidelines to protect everyone’s health and safety

  • spiritual communion 

    Spiritual Communion Prayer
    My Jesus,
    I believe that you are present
    in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
    I love you above all things,
    and I desire to receive you into my soul. 
    Since I cannot, at this moment,
    receive you sacramentally,
    come at least spiritually into my heart. 
    I embrace you as if you were already there
    and unite myself wholly to you. 
    Never permit me to be separated from you.
