“Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'”  – John 6:35

“The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.  The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself…” – Catechism of the Catholic Church

The Catholic Celebration of the Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist is called Mass.  “The word “Mass” comes from the Latin word, ” Missa.” At one time, the people were dismissed with the words “Ite, missa est” (literally meaning “Go, she—meaning you, the Church—has been sent”)….  Those assembled are sent forth to bring the fruits of the Eucharist to the world.” – www.usccb.org

Mass is celebrated daily at St. Bernadette’s church per our Mass ScheduleThe Order of the Mass includes the Introductory Rites, the Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist, and the Concluding Rites.
