St. Bernard is selling beautiful red poinsettias for the holidays. Each poinsettia is $10 and grows 13-15 inches tall with 5 blooms. They will be delivered the first week of December. They make a great gift for neighbors, family and coworkers or purchase to use as part of your holiday decorating or donate one to the church altar to commemorate a loved one. For added convenience, you can purchase poinsettias at our H&S online store www.thesbsstore.com/store. We also have volunteer opportunities if you wanted to help sell after church masses. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c48a9ab2eaa8-poinsettia

What is your dream vacation and who would you take with you? My dream vacation would be to visit Rome with my four sisters & hope to catch a glimpse of our Holy Father.
What is your favorite book and why? Divine Mercy in my Soul, Diary of St. Maria Faustina; her life is incredible and it makes you see your own suffering in a different way.
What famous person would you like to meet some day? I would have loved to meet Pope John Paul II, and just be in the presence of one of our greatest saints of our times
