Our Mission

The Mission of the Catholic Community of Saint Bartholomew is to build our lives in the image of Christ through love, worship and service.
From our Pastor
May 1, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Parish Council met last week to discern a Mission Statement for our parish. A mission statement should express in one sentence a focus for our life as a Christian Community in the Catholic tradition. We thought this would be a long process, but the grace of the Holy Spirit inspired us to focus our efforts on the essential elements of our parish life.

The Mission Statement agreed upon by the Council reads: “The Mission of the Catholic Community of Saint Bartholomew is to build our lives in the image of Christ through love, worship and service.”

This statement will be placed on our webpage, appear in the weekly bulletin, and should become a part of all the organizations and ministries that make up our life together.

May I take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the members of the Council who helped in writing this Mission statement.

This Tuesday, our new Bishop James Checchio will be ordained as the fifth Bishop of Metuchen. We welcome Bishop James as our new shepherd and pray for his welfare. I invited Bishop James to come and celebrate a Sunday Mass here at Saint Bartholomew.

Next Sunday, May 8th, the parish May Crowning will be celebrated at the 10am Family Mass. All our First Communicants are invited to be part of the procession. Please email Barbara Fitzgerald if you are planning to attend,

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas
