From our Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Today we celebrate the feast of the Holy Apostle and Martyr Bartholomew, our patron. The feast falls on the 24th day of August but we celebrate on the Sunday closest to the feast day. Bartholomew, “the son of Tolmai”, is named in the lists of the Apostles in all three synoptic Gospels. He has traditionally been identified with the Nathaniel of John’s Gospel, of whom Jesus says, “Here is a true Israelite. There is no duplicity in him.” (John 1:47). According to tradition after the Resurrection Bartholomew went to India and Greater Armenia where he was martyred. He is considered the founder of the Armenian Church.

Saint Bartholomew, pray for us. Happy Feast Day!

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas

Drivers wanted!

Some of our seniors have disabilities that prohibit them from driving but are healthy in other ways.  Many of them want to come to Church but because they cannot drive they are unable to attend Mass. We are looking for drivers for the 5:00PM Mass on Saturday and the 8:00AM, 10:00AM and 12:00noon Masses on Sunday.

If this seems like a way you would like to share your gifts with others please call Sr. Kathleen at 732-238-1791.
