Dear Brothers and Sisters,

One of the joys of summer is the opportunity to get away from our daily routine and find a place to relax and renew our spirits. In today’s Gospel, Our Lord invites the apostles, “to come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest awhile.” When I was involved in Campus Ministry at Rutgers University the students would often remark about their overcrowded schedules. They called this experience a “Time Famine” essentially the absence of a time for refreshment and renewal. We need a time to recharge our spirit, a Sabbath time away from our daily tasks and responsibilities.

Please take some time each day to enjoy the beauty of nature and the renewal of friendships and relationships. Time does fly, but we need to slow down and experience the grace of the season.

Happy Summer!

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas

From Our Summer Seminarian

Greetings! My name is Jay Alquiros and I am the seminarian assigned here at St. Bartholomew for the summer. I am in second theology and just finished my third year in the seminary. God-willing, I will be ordained to the priesthood in 2021. Prior to the seminary, I worked in accounting for three years. Summer is my favorite time of the year. I get a break from classes, but also spend time in a parish. I get to experience what parish life is really like and receive many lessons and insights that will be helpful in my future ministry. One of the things that Fr. Tom has asked me to do this summer is to lead morning prayer during the week. If you are interested, please join me at 8:00 before the 8:30 mass. Let us hold each other in prayer! God bless!
