The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has launched Beacons of Light, a comprehensive process of pastoral planning, to study every aspect of the archdiocese and parishes to determine how to best array our resources – human, physical and financial – to spread the Gospel far and wide.
St. Bernard Parish is now part of a family of six parishes under one Pastor, along with Assumption, Mother of Christ, St. Bartholomew,
St. Clare, and St. Vivian.
These 6 parishes are to come together to form one parish within the next 5 years
a small place where God's love is made BIG!
We are a welcoming Catholic community with a strong commitment to our faith who celebrate the Eucharist in an intimate, spirit-filled setting.
We foster lay participation and leadership and share generously of our time, talent and financial support, focusing on the spiritual and material needs of all.
We work to promote justice in ourselves, our church, our community and our society
based on Gospel values.

A discussion about life in Ukraine with Marta & Winston
Shortly after the one year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, St. Bernard hosted an informal sharing by Ukrainian Marta Yeremenko and her husband, American Winston Ware. Learn about their experience, the country and its people and the impact of the war - up close and personal.
Our Vibrant Faith Community
St. Bernard Parish has been a vital community of faith and worship for over a century, responding to the evolving realities of Church and society in faith, hope and love.
A significant element of our 100th Anniversary Year involved renovation of our annex building. We have made some major improvements, adding 2 new HVAC systems, updated restrooms, interior and exterior painting, and sound deadening acoustic panels. We would like to add new flooring and update the library room.
We have renamed the annex the “Shappelle Center” in honor of Fr. Jim, who was our longest serving pastor and whose ministry knew no boundaries. Please consider a donation to help fund these critical renovations as we look forward to enjoying our new community space.
