All Pandemic Policies Still in Effect
Please be aware that at this time no changes have been made to the precautions and practices currently in place at St. Bartholomew. All are still required to properly wear masks and maintain 6' social distance, and we are still only seating people in every other pew and limiting the total number of people who may be in the church at one time. We appreciate your continued cooperation in consideration of the health and safety of everyone.

Parish Family Prayers
We all have a special vocation. Do you know yours? This month we pray together to open our hearts and listen to the loving call Jesus has for each of us.
This week we pray for
the vocation of single life
You have given me the gift of life and the gift of your Holy Spirit. For these incredible gifts, I thank you. Help me to use them well.
Deepen within me a desire to do your will. Help me to hear and answer your call to serve you. Guide me to the vocation you have chosen for me:
as a single person living a life of generous service, as a loving spouse and parent in the Sacrament of Marriage, or through a special call to serve you in Religious Life or the Priesthood.
May your Holy Spirit keep me always close to your Son Jesus, and help me to say yes to Him with the gift of my life. Bless those who are serving now with courage and perseverance. Grant that many will be inspired by their example and faith.
Lord, Bless the Church of St Bartholomew the Apostle with a generous response to your invitation for vocations. Because Jesus loved us first, we seek to do His will.
As we Start the Easter Season, let us offer this week the First Glorious Mystery decade of the Holy Rosary for the vocation to single life.
The Stations of the Cross
will be prayed in English in the prayer garden beside the rectory on the first Tuesday of each month. Next date:
Tuesday, April 6, at 6:30 PM.
