St. Bernard of Clairvaux Important Updates

Welcome/Bienvenue to

St. Bernard of Clairvaux Catholic Elementary School





“Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, and sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother,
to thee I come,
before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word
Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy,
hear and answer me. Amen.”

This prayer was composed after the writings of St. Bernard, the first to give Mary her title of Notre Dame.

Souvenez-vous, ô très miséricordieuse Vierge Marie, qu'on n'a jamais entendu dire qu'aucun de ceux qui ont eu recours à votre protection, imploré votre assistance, réclamé votre secours, ait été abandonné.
Animé d'une pareille confiance, ô Vierge des vierges, ô ma Mère, je cours vers vous et, gémissant sous le poids de mes péchés, je me prosterne à vos pieds.
O Mère du Verbe incarné, ne méprisez pas mes prières, mais accueillez-les favorablement et daignez les exaucer. Amen

Cette prière a été composée d'après les écrits de Saint Bernard, le premier à donner à Marie le titre de Notre-Dame.

We welcome the Uniqueness of all students.
We will have the Compassion to not bully

Virtue of the Month


You must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge,, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love.  For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  2 Peter 1:5-8

God wants us to do what we know and feel is right

A person with self-control.....

  • is patient with themselves and others
  • knows how to share and take turns
  • has the power to stand up for what is right
  • looks for peaceful ways to solve conflict
  • can think things through

Our Daily Prayer for January

Let us now pray......for the virtue of self-control so that we will resist the temptation to cause harm to ourselves and others around us....AMEN



May the wonder of that first Christmas,
the joy of God's abundant blessings,
and the peace of Jesus' presence
be with you always


Happy New Year
