From the Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As we begin our New Year here at the Parish of Saint Bartholomew it is my joy to welcome 352 students to our excellent parish school. The Parish School opened on September 9th, 1964 and this year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary. If you have not yet made a reservation to attend the Anniversary Dinner Dance on October 18th please fill out the form in this week’s bulletin.

I am happy to announce the establishment of the “Ave Maria Endowment Fund.” This fund is a gift from the estate of Anna Ollivierre to ensure the future viability of our school. If you would be interested in contributing to this fund please see the insert in the bulletin for further information.

Tomorrow is the feast of the Nativity of Our Lady, (September 8th). Please remember to pray the “Hail Mary” tomorrow for peace in the world. May the prayers of Our Lady bring us closer to the Heart of Her Son, Jesus.

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas
