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
December 4, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Season of Advent can be an overwhelming time of preparations and parties but the Church calls us to a more quiet and reflective period of prayer as we wait in joyful hope for the Coming of Christ. One way to grow in our spiritual life is to spend 5 – 10 minutes a day in silence, a quiet time at the beginning or the end of the day. Our society is plugged in 24/7 and this has harmed our families and our relationships. It is time to awake and focus on what is essential: the love of God that comes to us in Our Savior Jesus Christ.

The early Christians prayed “Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus. Amen.”

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas

and may perpetual light
shine upon them.
