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
July 24, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

One of the gifts that we receive in Baptism, is the gift of prayer. The Holy Spirit takes possession of our hearts and the Spirit prays within us. All Christians are called by their baptism into Christ to be men and women of prayer. Prayer is the lifting of the mind and heart to God. In the Our Father, Jesus gives us the “perfect prayer”, a prayer that praises God as Father, and asks that God’s will would be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

In order to have a spiritual life, one needs to have a daily prayer life. As I grow older, I find that the best time for me to pray is the early morning. To arise early and praise the Lord in prayer is the best part of the day. Please find a time in your day for prayer. One can pray while out for a walk or even driving to work, one can pray in an easy chair at home, or around the kitchen table. The important thing is to pray. All of the Catholic devotions, rosary and chaplet, are there to aid us in our prayer lives. Do not let the Summer go by without beginning a daily ritual of prayer. To persevere in prayer, to ask, to seek, to knock, as the Gospel bids us is to rely totally on God’s will at work in our life.

God does answer our prayers, have you spoken to Him today?

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas

Drivers wanted!

Some of our seniors have disabilities that prohibit them from driving but are healthy in other ways.  Many of them want to come to Church but because they cannot drive they are unable to attend Mass. We are looking for drivers for the 5:00PM Mass on Saturday and the 10:00AM and 12:00noon Masses on Sunday.

If this seems like a way you would like to share your gifts with others please call Sr. Kathleen at 732-238-1791.
