Our Parish Now...


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 are made more so by the faithful and active participation of all present. Both the daily and Sunday celebrations 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 our parish community welcomes you and prays for you.


Fr. Dan O'Connell


Happening Now…

Our Parish Grand Annual Collection

We kicked off our Grand Annual Collection. Many of you have already started to donate! Thank you so very much! The donations we receive make possible many of the improvements we have been seeing around our parish to help it continue to be the welcoming parish it is. It helps us minister in fairness to all who come to us for assistance. It is the time year when we allow Jesus’ Spirit to move us to understand and live the notion of Sacrificial Giving. When we give from the heart, we touch ours to His, and some amazing things can happen.

Thank you for your generous and giving spirit.

If you did not receive a letter and would like to be a part of our campaign, please feel free to take a letter and donation envelope from any of the doors of the church.
