Bernie brings more than his contemporary Christian music to his ministry. His willingness to serve the young and dedication to the Lord through the years comes from a burning desire to simply want to follow the way and proclaim the truth. Bernie's journey back to the Catholic Church has been blessed, despite the inevitable challenges. Although a successful career in music was always his dream, he'd soon find out that God had big plans for how he would use his gifts.

Bernie's renewal in his faith left in him a desire to evangelize. "I think teens can see what's real and what isn't. Just give them the truth! Something they can sink their teeth and hearts into!"

In the past 8 years he has told his story and has sung his songs for thousands of youth in the New England area, including over 100 parishes in the Boston area alone. There, Bernie works full time directing and playing for parishes, retreats, rallies, conventions and other youth related events often leading him across the country. Bernie constantly looks forward to his writing and recording and enjoys the love and support of his wife and daughters.

Bernie is the music director for St. Mary's Life Teen in Foxboro, MA and director of music for all liturgies at Resurrection Parish in Hingham, MA. Bernie is an artist for Heartbeat Records and belongs to CAM (Catholic Association of Musicians), a networking group for Contemporary Catholic artists. Some of Bernie's credits include Stubenville East in Attleboro, MA.; opening for Jars of Clay at Foxboro Stadium and performing at Fenway Park at Jubilee 2000 for 15,000 young people where his song "I'll Be Your Child" was chosen as the theme song for the event. Bernie also enjoyed ministering in Rome, where he went on pilgrimage with 800 of Boston's young people for World Youth Day. His performances in Rome included a Catechetical session at St. Paul Outside The Walls Basilica, a concert segment for the Word Records stage and a Life Teen concert at the Spanish Steps. Bernie was also asked to minister and perform at the National Catholic Youth Convention at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis and, most recently participated at World Youth Day in Toronto.

Bernie's newest album is entitled WITH YOU which is available through WLP. This highly anticipated album is sure to capture the attention of the young at heart with his unique vibe for praise and worship.

Bernie's mission is to draw the hearts of the young one step closer to eternal light in Christ Jesus. Think of Bernie when you schedule your next event.
