Many letters of thanks and tears were received from the recipients. You who have supported St. Bernardine's financially share the thanks and promised prayers. "When you did it for the least of my brothers, you did it for me". May the Lord continue to bless us and give us the hearts to share.


The History of Tithing at St Bernardine

 At the beginning of the fiscal year 2004/2005 with the unanimous support of both the Parish Council and the Parish Financial Council, Father McNamara decided to make St. Bernardine's a Tithing Parish. This meant that we as a parish, well aware of the tremendous financial blessings God has given us, would in the coming year give away ten percent of our income.
