Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Though the feast of Saint Bartholomew is celebrated on August 24th, we anticipate the feast this Sunday. Since St. Bartholomew is the patron saint of our community, we celebrate this great Apostle and Martyr and seek his intercession for ourselves and all the members of our parish family.

The Basilica of Saint Bartholomew in Rome is on an island in the Tiber River. Within this Basilica are the relics of Saint Bartholomew and his shrine has been a place of healing throughout the centuries. Surrounding the Shrine are numerous side altars dedicated to the Martyrs of the 20th Century. These men and women gave their lives for the sake of Christ and for His Gospel. They are commemorated along with Saint Bartholomew for their courage in the face of persecution.

Saint Bartholomew, Apostle and Martyr, pray for us. Happy Feast Day!

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!
