The Diocese of Santa Rosa was established on February 21, 1962 from portions of two previously existing dioceses,
San Francisco and Sacramento. Today, The Diocese of Santa Rosa includes a Catholic population of about 150,000
people in the counties of Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake, Humboldt and Del Norte. As such, it is geographically
large and very diverse; but demographically, it remains the smallest of the dioceses in California.

The Diocese of Santa Rosa consists of 42 parishes which are segmented into five  deaneries.  St. Bernard Parish is
within the Humboldt - Del Norte Deanery. Our Bishop is Rev. Robert Vasa.

Several delegates from the parishes throughout the diocese comprise a Diocesan Pastoral Council. St. Bernard
Parish currently has an available seat. If you are interested in serving on this council, please speak to our pastor.
