The Institute of the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Hyacinthe, founded by Louis-Zéphirin Moreau, owes to him their organization, and formation as a teaching body.


He made his classical and theological studies under the Sulpician Fathers in Montreal, and was ordained priest 1 October 1871. After a year as curate he became successively President of Sorel College, Canon of the Cathedral, Archdeacon, Secretary for the diocese, Vicar-General, Provost of the Chapter, and Prothonotary Apostolic. After the death of Bishop Moreau, in 1901, Mgr. Bernard was continued in the office of Vicar-General by Bishop Maxime Decelles, and, when the latter died, in 1905, was elected Vicar-Capitular.

He declined the See of St. Hyacinth on the plea of his enfeebled health, until he received from Pope Pius X a peremptory order to accept. He was consecrated 15 February 1906.


Besides "Synodal Decrees", and a summary of the "Clerical Conference", he edited the "Pastoral Letters" of the bishops of the diocese, in nine volumes.
