Coin Collection Update!

On November 16th, a Big pep rally ending Pueri Cantores-St. Bernard of Clairvaux's "PC-SBC Coin Collection" program over the last 6 weeks was held.  

PC-SBC kids had a blast taking turns pouring 250+ pounds of collected loose change into the sorting machines of the MidFirst Bank roving community service van.  

Great thanks to MidFirst's David Dang and Sherwood Underdown for working with PC-SBC to make it happen; for presenting PC-SBC Director Kent Campbell with a check for $2432.94 for the coins generously donated by supporters at St. Bernard's and elsewhere; and for matching donations of $500 from MidFirst Bank and $250 from MidFirst's Scottsdale & Shea Branch.  Add in about $500 in bills and checks also dropped into our blue collection buckets by supporters, and we raised enough to send one more of our PC-SBC singers on next year's trip to Rome to sing with Pope Francis in St. Peter's Basilica for the 2016 New Year Peace Mass.  

Thanks to all who donated, all who held buckets outside masses and elsewhere, and all who helped in myriad ways to make it a huge success!

Official Kickoff a Huge Success!

Yesterday, we sat in the Parish Hall, listened to the children sing and ate fantastic gumbo (thank you, Brian Menard!). Bishop Nevares joined our day by celebrating 11am Mass then speaking at the luncheon.

After months of planning and hard work, it was amazing to sit back and remember what we are working so hard for. The children started singing. Kent, the director, smiled at them, and they sang like angels.

Thank you so much to all of our volunteers and the steering committee for their tireless effort!

Have a blessed week everyone!

Featured on Channel 10!

A very big thank you to Rene for connecting us with Channel 10!

After a very long 2 and 1/2 hour rehearsal today, it was a joy to see our children on the news! They are busy preparing for the official fundraising kickoff with Bishop Nevares on Sunday and put in extra rehearsal time to make sure that everything is just right!

Thank you, Channel 10 for covering our story!
