From the Saint Vincent de Paul Society

The Saint Vincent dePaul Society is grateful for the overwhelming generosity of the St. Bartholomew Parish during this holiday season. We would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Adopt-a-Family program. Over $8700 in funds and gifts were donated and used to help our families during this difficult time. Your kindness allowed us to assist these clients with rent payments, utility bills, medical expenses and car repairs, as well as, the purchase of household items including Christmas dinner for one family.

We also want to acknowledge the generous food and monetary donations that we received during our December Food Pantry Collection. In addition, we would like to thank the members of World Tavern Poker Tournament for their collection, Because of this abundance of donations, we were able to restock the pantry shelves with many necessities. The money we receive allows us to keep the pantry stocked between food collections and is used to purchase meat for our clients. Providing food to the less fortunate is an important part of the SVDP mission. If you have any questions about our food pantry, please contact Debbie Wagner at

Our organization is very appreciative of the kindness shown by our parishioners and others in the local community. May God bless you in the coming year.

St. Bartholomew Church in East Brunswick Hosted Listening Session

On Monday October 22, the parish of St. Bartholomew in East Brunswick hosted a listening session on the current sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. The session was facilitated by Sister Margaret Conlon, Sister of Charity. Sister Conlon has ministered to high school students and families, as a teacher and counselor, in Jersey City for over 20 years. For the last 27 years she has ministered as a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor at Emmaus House, a holistic center for women religious, in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. Sister Conlon has facilitated programs for suicide prevention for youth as well as groups and retreats for adult women in recovery.

The session began with a history of the crisis and the Church’s response before breaking into small groups to consider four questions. All were encouraged and welcomed to attend. A follow up report from the session will be delivered to the Most Reverend James Francis Checchio, Bishop of Metuchen.



If you were sexually abused by a member of the clergy or anyone representing the Catholic Church, or you know of someone who was, you are encouraged to report that abuse to law enforcement and/or by contacting the Diocesan Response Officer at (908)930-4558 (24 hours/7 days a week). For more information on how to report abuse, visit our diocesan website:
