Sr Bernadette was born in London, the youngest of 3 children. Her parents wanted her to be a teacher and she worked for a few months as an Assistant Teacher in the Convent on Easthampstead Road.
Sr Bernadette had always wanted to be a nurse and after finishing her studies she decided to enter the Dominican Sisters of Charity. She entered the Order in February 1959 in Tours, in the Loire Valley, where she was working with the Sisters. In August of that year she took the habit and made her first Religious Profession in August 1962. This weekend would have been her 60th Anniversary of Religious Profession.
Sr Bernadette nursed for 10 years in Tours and in Paris before returning to England where she continued nursing in Wokingham, Ascot and Nettlebed before becoming the Matron of a Nursing Home. She then took early retirement to care for the elderly sisters in the Convent.
When the Convent was sold she shared a flat with Sr Thérèse and visited Sr Veronica in the Nursing Home. She was active in Parish and town life and will be sorely missed.
May she rest in peace.
Whether you are new to the parish or an existing church member, Corpus Christi is a welcoming community of parishioners of all ages and many nationalities, plus a wonderful primary school, coming together to celebrate the Catholic faith.
The Catholic community in Wokingham was established as a parish in 1902, and the present church dates from 1970. It is situated in the centre of the town.
Like all Catholic parishes throughout the world, its life is centred around the Sunday celebration of the Mass. Here, people thank God for all that God does for us and they commit themselves to living a Christian life, particularly proclaiming the gospel to the whole world.
