Renovating our Parish Campus

We mailed a proposal to all our registered parishioners asking for their input in a plan to solve the problem of the leaking church tower, to re-do the parking lot, to add a lobby to the church building and some other major changes as suggested by a recent engineering study. A feasibility study was completed this summer and we are awaiting diocesan approval for a funding campaign.
You can look at all the materials here.

Here is a copy of the mailing that was sent out.

 At Long Last, WATER!

On Super Bowl Sunday, the Charitable Kidz of Saint Bernard's invited the parish to donate funds towards the building of a well in Ochagbe, Nigeria, Father Patrick's hometown. While they hoped to raise $5000, $15000 was collected instead, making it possible for the well and tanks to be installed. 

Click on the photo of the drilling rig to see the story of this project and the final results. And thank you to the many people who participated so generously in this project.



FIREWORKS!!

Join Father Ralph up on the school roof for a 360 degree look at Levittown on the night of July 4th. The whole town was lit up in celebration.

And oh yes,  there's a cute "commercial" for you to enjoy (and we hope take advantage of) after the fireworks.
