Corpus Christi -St. Bernard Parish

Welcome to...


Welcome to the web pages of Corpus Christi-St. Bernard Parish (a Roman Catholic faith community) in the 'Garden City' of Newton. Our parish, living and thriving here in the western edge of our city, provides much to our parishioners and those outside of that description - all by the grace and life of God our Father, and in the name of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our beautiful and reverent celebrations of the Mass on Sunday is made more so by the faithful and active participation of all present. Both the daily and Sunday celebration of the Mass provide an oasis of grace and faith for many parishioners and those who visit. It is through the Eucharist that we are able to accomplish the other works of service and mercy that so define our Catholic tradition.

Each day, through the grace of Christ, we try to build this holy place of Corpus Christi-St. Bernard into a monument of what it means to be prayerfully and generously worthy of the promises of Christ-all in the middle of a public square often alive with voices calling folks elsewhere. As you navigate through these pages please know that all at our parish welcome you and prays for you.
