Originally from Hamilton, Ontario, Bernadette Gasslein studied English literature at McMaster University. She holds a license in sacred theology with a specialization in pastoral catechetics from the Institut Catholique de Paris, and an associateship diploma in performance in piano from the Royal Conservatory of Toronto. For the past 30 years, she has been engaged in various liturgical and catechetical ministries, including four years as a Project Specialist with the National Office of Religious Education of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops.

With Paul Inwood, Bernadette translated Liturgical Assembly, Liturgical Song, a combination of two books originally written in French by Joseph Gelineau, renowned Jesuit composer, author and musicologist: Reflections on Renewal and Ritual Roots of the Sung Parts of the Mass. It is a pastoral and scholarly resource for musicians, liturgists, presiding ministers and anyone striving to deepen their understanding of the role of music in the liturgy.

Bernadette is coordinator of liturgical life at St. Charles Parish in Edmonton, where she and her husband live.
