Isn't she lovely...

At 75, there is much to celebrate about this historic church

NEW HAVEN - St. Bernadette Catholic Church, which is located in the Morris Cove section, will celebrate its 75th Anniversary beginning with morning Mass on June 13 and followed by a dinner at 12:30 p.m. Anthony’s Oceanview Restaurant on Lighthouse Road.

Rev. Frank T. Carter current pastor of the parish, founded in 1934, said in a statement, “St. Bernadette was said to be the first parish in the world named in honor of the then newly canonized saint from Lourdes, France.”

A souvenir journal with the history of the parish, covering four generations, will be distributed at the dinner, the statement said. Robert Carbone is general chairman of the event.
A social hour will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by the dinner.

Tickets for the celebration $40 and include an open bar and hors d’oeuvres.
For information on the souvenir journal and reservations, call the parish rectory at 203-467-1007.
