MT 18:15-20

Jesus said to his disciples:
‘If your brother does something wrong, go and have it out with him alone, between your two selves.
If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.
If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you:
the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain any charge.
But if he refuses to listen to these, report it to the community;
and if he refuses to listen to the community, treat him like a pagan or a tax collector.
‘I tell you solemnly, whatever you bind on earth shall be considered bound in heaven;
whatever you loose on earth shall be considered loosed in heaven.
‘I tell you solemnly once again, if two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven.
For where two or three meet in my name, I shall be there with them.’

LK 6:1-5

One sabbath Jesus happened to be taking a walk through the cornfields,
and his disciples were picking ears of corn, rubbing them in their hands and eating them.
Some of the Pharisees said, ‘Why are you doing something that is forbidden on the sabbath day?’
Jesus answered them,
‘So you have not read what David did when he and his followers were hungry how he went into the house of God,
took the loaves of offering and ate them and gave them to his followers,
loaves which only the priests are allowed to eat?’
And he said to them, ‘The Son of Man is master of the sabbath.’

LK 5:33-39

The Pharisees and the scribes said to Jesus,
‘John’s disciples are always fasting and saying prayers, and the disciples of the Pharisees too, but yours go on eating and drinking.’
Jesus replied, ‘Surely you cannot make the bridegroom’s attendants fast while the bridegroom is still with them?
But the time will come, the time for the bridegroom to be taken away from them; that will be the time when they will fast.’
He also told them this parable, ‘No one tears a piece from a new cloak to put it on an old cloak;
if he does, not only will he have torn the new one, but the piece taken from the new will not match the old.
‘And nobody puts new wine into old skins; if he does, the new wine will burst the skins and then run out, and the skins will be lost.
No; new wine must be put into fresh skins.
And nobody who has been drinking old wine wants new. “The old is good” he says.’

LK 5:1-11

Jesus was standing one day by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the crowd pressing round him listening to the word of God,
when he caught sight of two boats close to the bank.
The fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets.
He got into one of the boats – it was Simon’s – and asked him to put out a little from the shore.
Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.
When he had finished speaking he said to Simon,
‘Put out into deep water and pay out your nets for a catch.’
‘Master,’ Simon replied, ‘we worked hard all night long and caught nothing, but if you say so, I will pay out the nets.’
And when they had done this they netted such a huge number of fish that their nets began to tear,
so they signalled to their companions in the other boat to come and help them;
when these came, they filled the two boats to sinking point.
When Simon Peter saw this he fell at the knees of Jesus saying, ‘Leave me, Lord; I am a sinful man.’
For he and all his companions were completely overcome by the catch they had made;
so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were Simon’s partners.
But Jesus said to Simon, ‘Do not be afraid; from now on it is men you will catch.’
Then, bringing their boats back to land, they left everything and followed him.

LK 4:38-44

Leaving the synagogue, Jesus went to Simon’s house.
Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever and they asked him to do something for her.
Leaning over her he rebuked the fever and it left her.
And she immediately got up and began to wait on them.
At sunset all those who had friends suffering from diseases of one kind or another brought them to him, and laying his hands on each he cured them.
Devils too came out of many people, howling, ‘You are the Son of God.’
But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak because they knew that he was the Christ.
When daylight came he left the house and made his way to a lonely place.
The crowds went to look for him, and when they had caught up with him they wanted to prevent him leaving them,
but he answered, ‘I must proclaim the Good News of the kingdom of God to the other towns too, because that is what I was sent to do.’
And he continued his preaching in the synagogues of Judaea.

LK 4:31-37

Jesus went down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath.
And his teaching made a deep impression on them because he spoke with authority.
In the synagogue there was a man who was possessed by the spirit of an unclean devil,
and it shouted at the top of its voice, ‘Ha! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God.’
But Jesus said sharply, ‘Be quiet! Come out of him!’
And the devil, throwing the man down in front of everyone, went out of him without hurting him at all.
Astonishment seized them and they were all saying to one another,
‘What teaching! He gives orders to unclean spirits with authority and power and they come out.’
And reports of him went all through the surrounding countryside.

LK 4:16-30

Jesus came to Nazara, where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day as he usually did.
He stood up to read and they handed him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
Unrolling the scroll he found the place where it is written:
The spirit of the Lord has been given to me,
for he has anointed me.
He has sent me to bring the good news to the poor,
to proclaim liberty to captives
and to the blind new sight,
to set the downtrodden free,
to proclaim the Lord’s year of favour.
He then rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the assistant and sat down.
And all eyes in the synagogue were fixed on him.
Then he began to speak to them, ‘This text is being fulfilled today even as you listen.’
And he won the approval of all, and they were astonished by the gracious words that came from his lips.
They said, ‘This is Joseph’s son, surely?’
But he replied, ‘No doubt you will quote me the saying, “Physician, heal yourself” and tell me, “We have heard all that happened in Capernaum, do the same here in your own countryside.”’
And he went on, ‘I tell you solemnly, no prophet is ever accepted in his own country.
‘There were many widows in Israel, I can assure you, in Elijah’s day,
when heaven remained shut for three years and six months and a great famine raged throughout the land,
but Elijah was not sent to any one of these: he was sent to a widow at Zarephath, a Sidonian town.
And in the prophet Elisha’s time there were many lepers in Israel, but none of these was cured, except the Syrian, Naaman.’
When they heard this everyone in the synagogue was enraged.
They sprang to their feet and hustled him out of the town;
and they took him up to the brow of the hill their town was built on, intending to throw him down the cliff,
but he slipped through the crowd and walked away.

Who are we?

Our Mission


ornament1 St Bernadette’s Parish Castle Hill of the Diocese of Parramatta is a welcoming missionary Catholic Community, nurturing its people in faith and service and seeking to reflect and share the compassion of Jesus Christ with our local community and beyond.

Our Patron Saint


ornament1 Bernadette had precarious health, afflicted with asthma and other ailments. When Our Lady first appeared to her, Bernadette was fourteen years of age but had not made her first holy communion and was regarded as a very dull pupil. She was known, however, to be good, obedient and kind to her younger brothers and sisters, despite her poor health.

Our history


ornament1The history of St Bernadette’s parish began in Baulkham Hills, in the year 1849. For “Ten Pounds of Lawful British Money”, a contract was signed and sealed for the purchase of one and a half acres of land on the New Windsor Road which was to be the site for the first St Michael’s Church.
