BRIDGEWATER - "This Church stands as a monument that he helped build for Christ," Bishop James F. Checchio said at a funeral Mass March 28, which he celebrated for Father John L. Brundage. For 17 years, Father Brundage served as pastor of St. Bernard of Clairvaux Parish. He died March 16 in in Marathon, Fla., where he lived after retiring in June 2013.
During his time as pastor of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, the current church was built. It was his wish to be buried from the parish and laid to rest in its cemetery.
