Golden Jubilee celebrations

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

The highlight of the Golden Jubilee celebrations for St. Bernadette’s Church takes place on Sunday 29th October at 3pm, when the Anniversary Mass will be celebrated, exactly 50 years to the day since the dedication and opening of the building. The chief celebrant will be Bishop Anthony Farquhar, who took part in blessing of the foundation stone in 1965 and the Mass of Dedication in 1967. He will concelebrate with Fr. Armstrong and many of the priests who have served the people of St. Bernadette’s over the years. Music will be provided by the Adult Choir, the Folk Group, children from St. Bernard’s Primary School, Parish Organist Marty Lavery and two trumpeters.

All parishioners are invited to attend, and people with wider connections to the church or interest in it will also be most welcome. In particular we will be delighted to be joined by former parishioners and anyone who was involved with the initial fundraising or with the recent refurbishment.
The Mass will be broadcast live through the “Watch live” link on this website for those who are not able to attend in person.
A 32-page commemorative booklet has been produced, containing both the text of the Anniversary Mass and a history of the church, including photographs taken through the years. Many thanks to the current and past parishioners who supplied historical material for use in this publication. Anyone who is not able to attend in person can download a copy of this booklet here Download

Sacramental Certificates

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

In order to comply with the Data Protection Act, all requests for Sacramental Certificates need to be made in writing and a certificate can only be issued to those named on the Parish records – for instance, the person who was baptised, or, in the case of someone under the age of 16, their parent or guardian.

To request a certificate confirming entry in one of the church registers, please visit the Sacramental Certificates page for more details.

Parish Webcamera

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

The Parish webcamera is now online, all Masses from the church will be streamed via the website and can be accessed around the world. 

It is hoped that broadcasts will enable Parishioners who are sick and housebound, and who have access to the internet, to be a part of the daily celebration of the Eucharist. If you have a relative or friend who would like to use live-streaming and may not be familiar with the internet, please help them to access the service via whichever device they can easily learn to use.

We are very grateful to the Order of the Knights of Saint Columbanus for their generous donation towards the cost of this project.
