Inscription. Since it was founded in 1907, St. Bernard's Parish has been a religious and social focus of neighborhood life on the East side. This imposing church building was erected during a decade of heavy construction activity among Madison's religious institutions, much of which was directed toward serving the rapidly growing suburbs. The native sandstone structure was the largest Catholic church in the city when it was built. The architect, John Flad, designed many Catholic churches throughout the Midwest.
 
Erected 1981 by the Madison Landmarks Commission. (Marker Number 66.)
