The Missionaries of Saint Charles, also known
as Scalabrians, from the name of their
beloved Founder, Bishop John Baptist Scalabrini, now “Blessed”, were founded
in Piacenza Italy, on November 28, 1887.
On that day, the first two missionaries,
Fr. Giuseppe Molinari & Fr. Domenico Mantese,
professed their vows before Bishop
Scalabrini in the Basilica of St. Antoninus
in Piacienza. The two missionaries were
also given a missionary crucifix to accompany
them on their journey, one to the United States and the other to Brazil. Many other missionaries followed them to various towns and cities in both of these countries.
In Providence alone, the missionaries established nine churches for the newly-arrived Italians, one of which was Saint Bartholomew Church in Silver Lake, founded in 1907, and still helping newly-arrived immigrants from various countries in Central and South America. We ask our parishioners to pray for the many missionary priests who served and still serve Saint Bartholomew Parish. We also ask our parishioners to pray for more vocations from young men of our parish to follow in the footsteps of the many dedicated missionaries who served in our parish over the last
109 years.

As part of our Christmas giving, you will notice in front of the church entrance the Advent Giving Tree. Every parish family is encouraged to participate in reaching out to the needy of the parish and our community during the Christmas Season. Parishioners are asked to select one or more tags from the tree. Each tag represents a particular item or items needed and will be given to a designated recipient. Please return the gifts by December 11th so that they can be delivered in time for Christmas giving. We ask that you return the gifts UNWRAPPED. However, they can be placed in a Christmas gift bag with the tag attached. Let us enter into the real Spirit of Christmas….the Spirit of giving, for we celebrate God’s greatest gift to the world….the gift of His Son, Jesus.
Come and rest in our hearts this
Advent Season.
Bless us and guide us as we await
Your birthday.
With great joy and deep gratitude
we look forward to this celebration of
Your birth.
In these days of Advent, change us,
soften our hearts and forgive us our sins,
that we might greet You this Christmas
with pure hearts, to forgive, hearts
ready to celebrate.
Come Lord Jesus, and rest in our hearts
this advent season and always.
