Christian Action

Christian Action at St. Bernadette is a ministry where all parishioners can serve in some way. It is our mission to be the hands and feet of Christ, accepting people in need as they are when they enter our doors. We aspire to treat people with great dignity and help them in the best way we are able.

Our volunteers are at the heart of the ministry, and we cannot operate without them. Christian Action is a ministry that becomes "family" to those volunteering here. We have many areas in which to serve in Christian Action. Our volunteers are diversified, yet speak one voice of service and love through Christ.

We are open the public Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30am-11:30am. If you would be interested in learning more about serving in your Christian Action Ministry please e-mail: faheyj@stbchurch.org
