Our Mission

The Mission of the Catholic Community of Saint Bartholomew is to build our lives in the image of Christ through love, worship and service.
From our Pastor
October 16, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Last Saturday, Bishop Checchio celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation for 124 young men and women of our parish. During the Mass the Bishop spoke to the congregation about the importance of being faithful disciples of the Lord. It is through the Holy Spirit that we are empowered to proclaim the Good News that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior.

The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit that we received in Confirmation allow us to build the Kingdom of God through the holiness of our lives. The fruits of the Holy Spirit are the nine attributes of a Christian life. In his letter to the Galatians, St. Paul writes: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, faithfulness, and self control." (Galatians 5:22-23)

May the Holy Spirit continue to strengthen us to live as faithful members of the Church.

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.
