WELCOMING YOU HOME

St. Bernadette's and St. John Bosco parishes are a growing community of disciples of Jesus Christ committed to loving God, loving others and making disciples.

As Roman Catholics, we seek to honour our faith tradition by authentically and creatively presenting it in our community especially to Catholics who have become disconnected from the Church.

 

What to expect when you visit either parish. An authentically Catholic parish community, a warm and open environment where you and your family will feel welcomed and at home. You’ll experience community and a relevant message that isn’t about rules but about you and God.

DAILY MASS

There are no public Masses at this time.

It is at this exact moment that our faith is most needed. When you cannot attend Mass, you are encouraged to read the Gospels, pray with your families, and join yourself to the Eucharist—the source and summit of our Catholic faith—by making an act of spiritual communion.


Each day Mass will be live-streamed from the Parish. Monday to Friday @ 9:30am, Saturday @11:00am, and Sunday @10:30am. In additional we will continue to audio record Mass on Sunday as this has proven to be very popular. We aim to make this recording available on the Parish website for 11:30am.  To follow our live-streamed Masses click here. Masses can be viewed at anytime as they are automatically uploaded to the Catholic Erskine YouTube channel. To listen to the audio recording of the Sunday Mass click here.

Please join our online faith community.

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION


“My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.  I love you above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul.  Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you.  Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.” {Saint Alphonsus}

BAPTISM

Some parents hesitate to request a Baptism because they do not regularly attend Mass or support the parish. If this is you, you may want to evaluate the reasons you are seeking Baptism for your child. Is it for tradition? Is it an expectation within your family? Is it a social obligation? Or is it a desire to share the life of Christ? The parish community welcomes all to become part of our parish family and to share in that life of Christ. Speak with Fr. David after Mass for an opportunity to assess your needs, discuss our faith and the unique responsibility to share it with the child God has entrusted to you.
