A reflection of the vibrant and friendly Christian community at St. Bernardine is reflected in its enthusiasm for participating in social events. They are always well supported and provide an excellent opportunity for making new friends and reinforcing existing friendships. These events also provide a valuable contribution to Church funds. Many events are organised during the year such as; a wine tasting evening, quiz night, musical events, fun horse racing evening, barbeque lunch, mini-fete, flower arranging demonstration class etc. These events are always enjoyable, inexpensive and usually accompanied by a superb meal prepared by a number of very talented cooks from within the parish. From time to time visits are arranged to places of historical and religious interest.
Coffee after Mass
Coffee is served in the parish room after 11.00 Mass every Sunday. This provides a chance to meet and chat with other parishioners, and to catch up on the comings and goings of the parish. A small group of volunteers prepare and serve the tea, coffee, squash and biscuits on a rota basis. New volunteers are always welcome.
