Partnerships - St. Bernard's


Partnerships are an essential aspect of our mission, since they are a key way to build up the ecclesial community in upstate New York and across the country. We are proud to partner with several different communities in our pursuit of goodness, truth, and beauty:

Abbey of the Genesee

The Abbey has been a place of stalwart faith and authentic Christian witness. We are blessed to know them and to have recently partnered with them in our retreat course - a program that seeks to combine the scholarship of our graduate courses with the monastic way of life at the Abbey.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (Rochester)

We are thrilled to assist in the growth and development of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in the Diocese of Rochester, primarily through administrative assistance for regional trainings and other events.

Exult Rochester (The Rochester Catholic Men’s Conference)

We are pleased to partner closely with the Men’s Conference by way of administrative assistance.

Ignite Catholic Men’s Conference (Syracuse)

We support the Catholic men’s community in the Diocese of Syracuse and regularly attend this annual conference.

National Catholic Bioethics Center

The National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) provides education, guidance, and resources to the Church and society to uphold the dignity of the human person in health care and biomedical research, thereby sharing in the ministry of Jesus Christ and his Church. Recognizing our common to provide a dynamic introduction to contemporary bioethics from a distinctively Catholic perspective, St. Bernard's is grateful for our partnership with the Aquinas Institute, made possible through the Graduate Certificate in Catholic Bioethics.

Saint John Society

The Saint John Society is a society of priests founded in Argentina dedicated to the New Evangelization and doing amazing work preaching the gospel in the United States and around the world. Recognizing our common mission of pursuing a kneeling theology and answering the universal call to holiness, St. Bernard's is grateful for this partnership with the St. John Society, made possible through the Certificate in Evangelization.

The Finger Lakes Guild

We are excited to have the Guild, a chartered guild of the Catholic Medical Association, partner with us on many speaker events and conferences. They have recently taken up office space within our main campus.

The Rochester Catholic Women’s Conference

We are pleased to partner closely with the Women’s Conference by way of office space and other administrative assistance.
