Vision & History

We, the people of St. Bernard Roman Catholic Church, are called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to give witness to the life and love of Jesus Christ. We desire to build a community based on forgiveness, caring, reaching out to one another, personal prayer and sacramental worship.

St. Bernard Parish was established July 12, 1956. Today we are blessed to have Fr. Mark Vander Steeg as our pastor. Fr. Mark has been at St. Bernard since July 3, 2012. We gather as community to celebrate our faith through uplifting mass celebrations, vast amounts of outreach ministries, a wonderful Catholic grammar school, well thought out and interesting adult education opportunities, a growing and energetic youth ministry and finally, in parish get-togethers where we can just celebrate being together!

We welcome the opportunity to welcome you to our parish community. Come visit us for one of our Mass celebrations or just stop in the Parish Center to speak to a priest or one of our cheerful staff members.  Give us a call at 920-468-4811. We look forward to hearing from you!
