Historic Windows

Our school is blessed to have two beautiful stained glass windows. Both stained glass windows were originally in St. Bernard‘s Church on Water Street and were gifted to us when that Church closed. The lobby window is the Church seal which was the model for our school seal done in mosaics on the opposite wall of the lobby when this building was opened in 1966. The second window which hangs in the window of the upper hallway is a youthful St. Bernard of Clairveaux, our patron saint. These beautiful windows connect our 21st century Bernardians with the parishioners of the 19th century who not only built our parish church but our original school which opened in 1886. These windows are symbols of our faith and reminders of the gifts left to us by Bernardians of long ago.
