Our community of Saint Bartholomew is holding a PARISH MISSION beginning on SUNDAY, APRIL 24th through WEDNESDAY, APRIL, 27th at 7:00 pm each evening in our church. Catholic Lay Evangelist, Bill Wagner, of Good News International, a Catholic Lay Ministry, will conduct the Mission. The theme is “Living and Sharing God’s Mercy!” This will be a good time to be encouraged in our faith and to deepen our relationships with God and with each other. Everyone is welcome to this special time of renewal within our community.

Reflection
The goal of the Christian journey is to be love, give love, and walk with love. Jesus tells us that mutual love is our story and our path to salvation. According to Jesus, if we want people to know who our Messiah is all we have to do is love as he loved his own disciples. It sounds like an easy prescription for inheriting the kingdom of God, but the reality is we even have to love those who hate, hurt, or wrong us. Let us move forward this Easter season loving as Jesus loved, forgiving as Jesus forgave, and giving as Jesus gave.
