Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The public life and ministry of Jesus begins with his
baptism at the Jordan River. John the Baptist proclaims
Jesus to be the Lamb of God, who will take away the
sins of the world. Immediately some of John’s disciples
begin to follow Jesus and desire to know more about
Him and His Mission. The first apostles, Andrew and his
brother, Simon Peter are the first to heed the call of the
Lord to come and follow Him.
We, too, are called in this New Year of 2018 to come
and follow the Lord Jesus. Our mission is to continue to
serve Him in word and in deed. To proclaim the good
news of the Gospel and to love God and our neighbor as
Jesus taught us. How is the Lord Jesus calling you to
serve Him through the parish family of Saint Bartholomew?
What talents and gifts are you willing to share
with your brothers and sisters in Christ?

Having trouble hearing in Church?
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.
