My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
I think St. Benedict hit the nail right on the head when he said, “If only we could welcome all like Christ, what a different world we would live in”.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the St. Bartholomew the Apostle website. Whatever the reason you came to our virtual door, I want you to know how happy I am that you did. I firmly believe that Jesus himself guided you here and so we welcome you as if you were Jesus.
This website has some helpful information about the life of our parish family and some interesting resources for you and yours. It also tells you who we are as a parish and what we offer, and what you can be part of. I hope you take the time to let us find out more about you, too, so that we can better serve you and your family. Most especially, I invite you to join us for Mass each weekend where everyone is welcomed as we recall the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I’m filled with joy in welcoming you, knowing that you are going to add so much more to this vibrant family of faith. If we can do anything to help you, especially for the little ones please don’t hesitate to call anyone on the Parish Staff. I am
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. John J. Paladino
