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
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.
