Saint Bernadette Parish

Roman Catholic Church - Surrey BC



Our Bingo takes place every week on Tuesday evenings. We play 18 regular games and 10 special games. Regular games begin at 6:30pm.
Progressive jackpot: watch for updates on the sign at the entrance to our parking lot to find out the jackpot total and number of calls required.
If you are interested in volunteering at Bingo please see the information below or
contact Erin, our Bingo Manager at or call 604-596-1833.

In order to continue providing a successful social activity to our community, we need more volunteers. With so many bingo halls closing, we are seeing an increase in patrons, which positively increases the revenue to our parish. In the past, our bingo has provided an annual equivilant in revenue to three major fundraisers. We would very much like to keep our Bingo open and continue to serve our community!
