Faith Formation

Here I Am Lord. Ready to learn, pray and serve. By listening to the desire that You planted deep in my heart, I am here to seek, discover and learn the wonders of You and all You have created. Through prayer, I am here to enter and fully embrace the most profound relationship of my life -the one with You. By serving right here at St. Bernadette’s, I am here to fully manifest the gifts and talents you have given me as I love the stranger, the neighbor and all those you have placed in my path. Here I Am Lord!
