St. Bernard of Clairvaux parish is a family-friendly church community located in the heart of historic Wauwatosa. The mission of St. Bernard Parish is to provide the people of God with the pastoral care and spiritual nourishment they need to proclaim the Good News of Christ in their lives and to the world.This blog will inform the community of events and activities at this special parish celebrating is 100th Anniversary in 2011.

As the weather (hopefully) gets warmer, human nature turns our attention to the great outdoors. We get so few months of "nice" weather here in Wisconsin, we tend to get busy making all sorts of plans to enjoy it. But hunger and the need for a helping hand are always present in and around our community-even when the weather is nice.
St. Bernard Parish happens to house the Wauwatosa Food Pantry. http://www.stbernardparish.org/wauwatosa_food_pantry.cfm
Please consider helping as you see fit.
Another one of the various ministries of the parish is our St. Bernard Parish visiting the homebound program. This is sponsored by the Human Concerns Committee that is headed up by the most dedicated, humble volunteers. The following thank you came from a former homebound parishioner who lives in Milwaukee, yet is still connected to Wauwatosa via the parish:
"St. Bernard Parish,
To all who sent me Easter cards I send my thanks. ... I appreciate you all taking the time to send cards-especially the school children & Scout troops, etc.
I recognized many of the parishioners' names.
Love and Prayers,
We are an imperfect people, but we at St. Bernard believe our calling is to do small things with a big heart. We welcome any and all to join us. "Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely, and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work." ~Mother Teresa
