News From Betty Chinn

I hope you're all doing well and staying healthy! The quarterly reports for our organization are out. In the past few months, I've felt incredibly blessed by God to be able to help out so many people in our community. We've helped clients make appointments for COVID testing, offered meals, and have even opened a shelter for women in hopes of helping these women and children heal from the challenges they've faced in their lives. I've always believed that God provides everything I need and uses me in order to help those who need it most. Right now, we're hard at work planning a celebration for the Thanksgiving holiday! This year, we'll be passing out meals to those living in motels alongside our annual food baskets for families in need. During this difficult time and especially during the holiday season, I really want to share love and kindness with the less fortunate members of our community.

Betty Chinn,
Founder & Program Director, Betty Kwan Chinn Homeless Foundation

Religious Education

This year, due to COVID, Religious Education will begin with at-home instruction by the family. Instruction begins October 4th. Registration forms for the families have been in September bulletins and on the parish websites, to be turned in by email to or the church offices or  register online at or Assistance from parish catechists is available after Masses monthly for registered families in person or by phone. Contact Kim Farrell, DRE for more information; her phone number is on the bulletin.

For English speakers, we will be sending Baltimore Catechisms to each family that enrolls, and to you as well if you are interested in assisting in this way.

For Spanish speakers, we are still researching options to keep the programs as similar as possible. Our Faith and Life series is still our main text, but during at home instruction this text is much easier for parents:

Scripture Study and Lectures at St. Bernard

Several people have mentioned how much they miss scripture study.  In memory of Fr. Eric Freed we will begin again by discussing The Reformations for 12 weeks: 9/13-11/29 with one 20 minute lecture per week, in the St. Bernard Church Hall right after the 10:30 mass.  We will meet every Sunday. There will be study notes, but no coffee. Those who stay for the lecture will clean their own spots.
