The Church of St. Bernadette

Church of Saint BernedetteWelcome to the Website for St. Bernadette Catholic Church located in Jefferson Barracks, MO. My hope is that this virtual tour will be enjoyable, informative, and enticing.

God, Family, and Nation. These three priorities have made us a great nation, under God with liberty and justice for all. These three priorities also describe the parish community of St. Bernadette’s. Our "roots" tie us to Jefferson Barracks, and enable us to stand out as the ONLY parish in the Archdiocese of St. Louis that has a direct link to the military. Many of our past as well as present families are examples of "unsung heroes" that have served this country proudly. This area was a big draw for many that returned from World War II, wanted to plant roots, raise a family, and live out their lives in this picturesque, historical setting.

As you surf our website you will be able to see that we are a vibrant and viable parish committed to answering the Lord’s call to spread His gospel message to all who come to us. Please accept my personal invitation to join us for one of our liturgies, or one of our activities. We feel we have a lot to offer everyone. We have a strong PSR program, a Youth group for young adults in grades seven through high school graduation, and a very dynamic Music Ministry.  Overall, there are many opportunities for fun and time well spent among some great folks no matter what your age and preferences for activities with a purpose.

Enjoy your time with us on the web and come back to visit us frequently. If you have questions or did not find exactly what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us at the rectory.

With the promise of prayers at the altar of the risen Lord,

Father Gary Faust
