In lieu of Mass, a communion service will be held at 8:00 am. The 12:10 pm Mass will take place as scheduled.

Diocesan Disaster Relief Collection

In the wake of the recent hurricanes that devastated Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, Florida, Louisiana and Texas, and the deadly earthquakes in Mexico, Bishop Checchio has asked that the diocesan-wide Disaster Relief Collection, originally intended to close September 30, be extended to support the relief and recovery efforts in the affected communities.

You may donate online at or write a check made payable to “Diocese of Metuchen” with “Disaster Relief” in the memo line and mail to the diocese.

Please give as generously as your means allow, to help our brothers and sisters who are most in need at this time. The Diocese will accept donations through Thanksgiving Day, November 23. All monies collected will be used to assist victims of these recent natural disasters, working with local Catholic relief and recovery agencies in the affected regions. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who have already contributed. Please continue to pray for all hurricane and earthquake victims, especially for the deceased and for families who have lost a loved one.

The 2017 SAT CLASS ~ REGISTRATION is now open

In loving memory of Chris Coppola, lifetime parishioner and altar server at St Bernard’s of Clairvaux Church, the CHRIS COPPOLA CDUB FOUNDATION is proudly sponsoring the New SAT CLASS on Saturday, October 28, one week prior to the popular November 4​ SAT exam, at St. Bernard.

Over the past 7 years, nearly 190 college bound students have​ ​successfully participated in this program. The content of the course used by the teachers is continuously updated. The class itself has been amended to reflect the SAT exam revisions of 2016.

The Class is offered as a comprehensive review course, designed for students to improve their preparation and readiness for the various facets of the SAT Exam. The Class is comprised of two sessions.

  • MORNING SESSION:  In the morning, the Reading/Vocab/English session is led by an experienced and knowledgeable high school English teacher, who specializes in SAT tutoring.
  • AFTERNOON SESSION:  The afternoon session, Mathematics, is taught by a professional with substantial Math teaching experience and who also specializes in SAT tutoring.

Students and parents may avail themselves of the SELECT option which allows students to SELECT one of or preferably both the morning and afternoon sessions at time of registration. Students may register for the entire class or may elect to register for only the Math (afternoon) or the Reading/Vocab/English session (morning).

A donation of $8​5 is suggested for those attending both the morning and the afternoon sessions.

Joyce and Dom Coppola are very thankful to Monsignor Randy Vashon for​ ​​all of his kind support. We are grateful to our teachers for volunteering their experience and time and everyone who supports the education, healthy life style and environmental goals of the CHRIS COPPOLA CDUB FOUNDATION.

Additional details and registration are now available at:​

We recommend online registration option. One may also register by calling us at 732-723-8201 (732-7CDUB01) or 201-988-8309.
