About Saint Bernard Parish

A Note From Our Pastor
Greetings, I am Fr. Bernard John D’sa. I was born and raised in the smallest state in India, Goa, where my family still lives. Until 1961, Goa was a colony of the Portuguese, who brought Christianity in the 16th Century. I was ordained a priest in 1994 and served as a high school teacher and principal. Later, I was invited in the United States to serve as Diocesan Catholic school teacher. In recent years, I have served as pastor in Clearlake and now Eureka, where the priesthood has really come alive for me. The Lord assisted me to touch the lives of the people with His love and compassion. Now I am here amidst you, called to serve and feel blessed. Trusting in the Divine Providence and in His Graces, I wish to undertake my apostolate as your shepherd. I request your prayers and be assured of my humble prayers always. God bless you, Fr. Bernard.
