Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The days of September are filled with so many new beginnings.

As a parish family we welcome back our school students and later this month our children in the Religious Education Program. Our Athletic Programs will begin again and all of our parish societies and organizations will be holding meetings and sponsoring events. We are indeed a very blessed and generous community and may Our Lord continue to bless our labors on behalf of His Kingdom.

This Friday, September 14th, is the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the day on which Saint Helena discovered the relics of the Cross of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. On this day I am requesting that we spend a day in prayer and fasting as we remember all the victims of sexual abuse. The Church will be open from 7 am until 9 pm. There will a Mass at 8:30 am with our school community and a Mass at 7pm. Please come and pray for the renewal of the Church and for our Holy Father Pope Francis. Let us continue to pray for one another.

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas

Welcome returning members! And welcome new members!

Adult Choir: All voice parts welcome. No audition required. Ability to read music not required, but is definitely a plus if you can. The only requirement is an enthusiastic spirit and the ability to be on time. The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm in the church, starting the first Thursday after Labor Day and continuing until around early June (depending on how the calendar falls).

Children's Choir: Attention all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. As a clarification, one need not be a student of St. Bartholomew School to be a member of our parish Children's Choir. Do you enjoy singing? How about joining the Children's Choir? Your voices are the core of our sound. If you like to sing, we need the leadership of your voices in the choir. We love to have middle schoolers join us even if it's your first time. Rehearsals begin on September 12th. See next week's bulletin for more information or email

Please pray for the members of our Parish Family who are sick as well as those who are serving in the armed forces.

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.
