From Our Pastor Our Pastor's Page
January 13, 2019 
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Blessings for the New Year 2019! Please allow me to express my gratitude to all of our parish ministers and pastoral staff for all of their hard work throughout the Advent and Christmas Season. Truly we are a blessed community and Christmas at Saint Bartholomew is always such a beautiful season of joyful celebration. I want to personally thank Lisa Soga and Roberts Florist for decorating the Church and the Nativity Scene. I am grateful to Deacon John Broehl and his wife, Nora, for arranging the pageant for the Christmas Eve Children’s Mass. Special thanks to our Adult and Childrens Choirs and Nick Gatto and Janet Defrietas and our cantors. I extend my thanks to the Knights of Columbus for providing ushers for all the Christmas liturgies.

May we continue to pray for one another in this New Year. May the Lord continue to bless the work of our hands.

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas

Lighting a fire in the heart of our world

This Pastoral Letter is a reflection on my pastoral visits to all 90 parishes within our diocese as well as visits to many Catholic schools, institutions and varied ministries and ethnic groups since I became your Shepherd last May. Based on my many conversations with clergy, religious and lay faithful during these months, it shares with you the priorities that emerged and which call for our attention as we go forward in this local Church of Metuchen. It is my hope and prayer that this Pastoral Letter will inspire you through the grace of the Holy Spirit to become kindling so together we can “set a fire in the heart of our world,” allowing God’s love and power to burn more brightly here in Central New Jersey. I look forward to further conversations and planning with you.

St. Bartholomew Church in East Brunswick Hosted Listening Session

On Monday October 22, the parish of St. Bartholomew in East Brunswick hosted a listening session on the current sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. The session was facilitated by Sister Margaret Conlon, Sister of Charity. Sister Conlon has ministered to high school students and families, as a teacher and counselor, in Jersey City for over 20 years. For the last 27 years she has ministered as a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor at Emmaus House, a holistic center for women religious, in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. Sister Conlon has facilitated programs for suicide prevention for youth as well as groups and retreats for adult women in recovery.

The session began with a history of the crisis and the Church’s response before breaking into small groups to consider four questions. All were encouraged and welcomed to attend. A follow up report from the session will be delivered to the Most Reverend James Francis Checchio, Bishop of Metuchen.

Hearing Assistance Devices are available in the rear of the Church. The devices cannot be used outside the Church, as they are connected to our Church public address system.

The hearing devices are used by many at daily and Sunday Masses and other Liturgical Celebrations. PLEASE be sure to return them to the box at the back of the Church and also be certain to turn the switch OFF before placing them back into the box.
