Dear Website Visitors:
Welcome to St. Bernadette Catholic Church's Website! I hope that you will find your visit here to be informative and beneficial, and that you will soon find your way to our Church, if you have yet to visit us. It is my sincere hope that you will find our parish to be a place of comfort and support. We, as a Parish Community, want you to feel welcome and to become involved in the many programs, groups, and activities promoted and supported by the Parish; and we hope that you will find a pleasant, prayerful, and supportive environment in which to learn about the Faith, connect with the community, and worship God. We hope that you will come to appreciate the reality that our Church is not just a structure built of brick and mortar, but truly a living temple of God's Holy Spirit: present, alive, and at work in all of the people of our parish; who are the Church, the living Body of Christ. We hope that you will join our Parish family and help us to strive to accomplish our collective responsibility to continue to build up the Church, through our ongoing physical and spiritual works and sacrifices.
We rejoice in the reality of Church made manifest here in our Springfield Community. May God continue to bless all those who enter St. Bernadette Catholic Church: as they seek strength and consolation from God in this holy place; and may God be with all those who leave this Church: may they go forth as living signs of His presence. May St. Bernadette, our beloved patron Saint, continue to intercede for us, and may our parish continue to grow in God's Grace and reflect God's Love to all. May God be praised and adored.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. Kevin J. Larsen
