CLOW (Children’s Liturgy of the Word) is a special liturgy of the Word for children between the ages of 4 and 11 at the 10:30 AM Mass. Children are dismissed to the gathering space in the Church where an adult CLOW volunteer guides them through their own readings and a child friendly homily. They are given their own special bulletin and then return to their families at the collection.

Choir Members enrich the liturgy in a very special way under the direction of Alison Shea, Music Director. There are three choirs at St Bernard’s: Adult, Teen and Children’s. The adult choir sings weekly at the 10:30 AM Mass and the Teen and Children’s Choirs sing once a month and on special occasions.
