Faith filled community outreach to our neighbors is on core value of St. Bernadette Parish. Our neighbors might be within the Fox Valley, such as NAMI, or as far away as the Dominican Republic. We provide support from infant to the young-at-heart.
We are excited once again to have been given the opportunity to say YES to several non-profits in need of a home to provide for their members. In early 2016 conversations began to relocate the activities of the Thompson Center and the Civic Center to the St. Bernadette Center.
In March of 2016, the Thompson Center on Lourdes (TCoL) opened their doors and never missed a beat since. All of the activities and many of the services previously offered were available once more. A new home was found for those “Celebrating life after 50."
We are now helping TCoL in their next steps of establishing their independence and sustainability by the filing of their 501(c)(3) and organizational structure.
In the process we want to especially thank all of you, our parishioners, who have
volunteered your time, treasure and talent in all the various outreaches that are part of the
St. Bernadette family. Thank you for making all these wonderful things happen! We ask
God to bless you and all of your families.
“Shout joyfully to the LORD, all you lands; serve the LORD with gladness; come
before him with joyful song. Know that the LORD is God, he made us, we belong to
him, we are his people, the flock he shepherds.” Psalm 100:1-3
