St. Bernard

Almighty and Everlasting God,You have given the human race Jesus Christ our Savior as a model of humility. He fulfilled Your Will by becoming Man And giving His life on the Cross. Help us to bear witness to You By following His example of suffering And make us worthy to share in His Resurrection. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.  Amen.                 ______________________________________________________________

Dear Wolfpack families, if you registered your child for Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year, we’re getting ready to send out a welcome package to your little learner! Starting school is an exciting time and we don’t think a global pandemic should dampen the experience.

What’s in the welcome package?

  • An activity book with crayons – we’ve made a colouring book filled with activities and pages for your child to engage their creative mind.

  • A virtual reality headset – have fun exploring kid-friendly apps with your child in VR!

  • Labels for shoes – labels are a Kindergarten parent’s best friend, so we’re gifting you a set to get you started.

  • A sticker and a selfie sign – since we can’t see you in-person yet, we still want to see your child’s excitement! Share your photos online by tagging @OttCatholicSB in your post and using our hashtag #ocsbReady

Tell your friends to register by March 18 to get a package!

To make sure your child gets a welcome to Kindergarten package, make sure your child is registered at their local Ottawa Catholic school by Thursday, March 18, 2021. You can still register your child for school after that date, we just can’t guarantee they will receive a welcome package.    REGISTER NOW


First Communion and First Reconciliation

   Dear Wolfpack families, The St. Bernard Sacramental Team would like to inform you that we are beginning preparations to hopefully offer the sacraments of First Communion and First Reconciliation to all students of your schools who may be interested in the coming months.

    This is just the first step to give us an idea of how we can proceed during this difficult time of Covid 19. As soon as we have a clearer picture of timelines and numbers, the information will be placed on the parish website and we will gladly share this with all parents and schools through personal emails provided on registration forms.

The deadline to register is set for Friday March 26th. Information Sheet and 

Registration Form

We thank you all in advance for helping us in this endeavour!

God Bless!
