FTLOTL - Adopt A Shoreline Program - Saturday, November 14th
Great news! SBS has been given a designated shoreline by the For The Love Of The Lake (FTLOTL) organization. We are on a 3 month probationary period monitoring participation and results.
Regular minimum care is on the Second Saturday Shoreline Spruce Up each month; however, depending on special events, adverse weather, and heavy use times at our shoreline, we should monitor between events. It may be necessary at times to schedule an off Second Saturday clean-up.
Our designated spot is located near and south of Winfrey Point, and west and below the Dallas Arboretum property along East Lawther Drive. This is a prime and heavily traveled section and would be very visible to the public. It can be accessed from the north via the parking lot below Winfrey Point or from the south va Garland Road. See the aerial map below.
Remember, newcomers are always welcome! As always, service hours are obtained for participation, and all supplies are provided by FTLOTL. We hope to see you there!

Virtue of the Month: STUDIOUSNESS
Here at St. Bernard, we strive in all we do to foster studiousness in our students, and in so doing, to create life-long learners for Christ.
“A Catholic school is a place where students live a shared experience of faith in God and where they learn the riches of Catholic culture...Catholic schools must help students to deepen their relationship with God and to discover that all things human have their deepest meaning in the person and teaching of Jesus Christ.” ~ Pope St. John Paul II

In Memory Of Marty Norris
Dear St. Bernard Family Members,
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that our long-time family member, Martin John Norris whom we knew as Marty, went to be with the Lord on October 30th. Marty and his family have been a part of the St. Bernard’s family for 47 years. Always willing to help, he was always involved with the church and school. Most recently, Marty served on St. Bernard’s Finance Council.
Marty will leave a huge void in our community. As we reflect on what Marty meant to our family and the impact of his loss, we find ourselves asking what was important to him. While there were many areas that he cared about, the school always held a special place in his heart. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers that a donation be made to St Bernard of Clairvaux Catholic School. Please help us honor Marty's wishes with your donation to St Bernard of Clairvaux Catholic School. https://www.eservicepayments.com/cgi-bin/Vanco_ver3.vps…
