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
September 18, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This US bishops have designated the Third Sunday of September as Catechetical Sunday, the theme for this year is “Prayer: The Faith Prayed.”

This year the Bishops of the United States invite all the baptized, especially Catechists and Catholic School Teachers, to devote themselves to a deeper study and practice of prayer. A good way to begin is simply to pray. Prayer is a lifting of the mind and heart to God. It can be performed in the morning upon awakening, or simply asking the Lord’s blessing before work begins or at lunchtime, and then again a prayer of gratitude at the end of the day. The important thing is to PRAY!!

I wish to extend my gratitude to all of our teachers and catechists who instill the practice of prayer in their students. May they be good examples and models of faithful discipleship.

Keep praying!

Pax Christi,

Fr. Thomas

PS. We are still in need of catechists for our Tuesday afternoon Religious Education Classes. Please contact Barbara Fitzgerald 732-390-0354.

Our excellent Choir is in need of new members, please contact, Nicholas Gatto if you are interested.

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 8:00AM, 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.
