About the Shrine

On October 7, 2003, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, Archbishop Michael Sheehan joined pastor Father Zotter and more than 700 parishioners to proclaim that St. Bernadette Catholic Church would henceforth be known as the Shrine of St. Bernadette. We assure our pilgrims that they are remembered at all Masses offered at the Shrine. St. Bernadette often instructed: "Open your arms to those you meet before they have the opportunity to offer their hands." The shrine opens its arms to all who enter.
