+WELCOME TO OUR PARISH FEAST+
We extend a welcome to parishioners, former parishioners, friends and devotees of St. Bartholomew who come to honor our parish patron, St. Bartholomew, Apostle. Through his intercession, may the Lord send down special blessings upon all of us as we turn to him in faith and prayer. Our 10:30 am Feast Mass in honor of our parish patron, is being offered for the intentions of parishioners, friends and devotees of our Saint. Following Mass, the traditional procession will take place by way of the site of our former church and will conclude with the blessing of the bread of St. Bartholomew in front of the church.

OUR PATRON, ST. BARTHOLOMEW—He was chosen by our Lord Himself to be one of the 12 Apostles (also known in the Gospel as Nathanael). He preached the Gospel in the most barbarous countries of the East. The last field of his labors was Great Armenia, where preaching against the worship of idols caused him to suffer martyrdom. Some say that he was skinned alive, others believe that he suffered crucifixion. His relics are now preserved in a church dedicated to him on an island in the Tiber River near Rome. We are honored to call him our PARISH PATRON!

IT’S A RELIGIOUS FEAST PROCESSION
Those taking part in our traditional Procession with the statue of St. Bartholomew following the 10:30 am Mass on Sunday, August 10th, are reminded that this is a procession not a parade or political rally. We are here to honor our parish patron, St. Bartholomew. We ask that all maintain a prayerful atmosphere as we pray the Rosary!

A SINCERE THANK YOU—to Angelo DeFeo for donating the “Bread of St. Bartholomew” in loving memory of his father, Domenico DeFeo and his sister, Susan DeFeo Grace. The bread will be blessed and distributed following the Feast Mass in honor of St. Bartholomew. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. May they rest in the peace of heaven assured of our prayers.
+THOUGHTS ON ST. BARTHOLOMEW+
“Dear St. Bartholomew, we come to you with confidence since you are our patron and model, the pride and joy of Silver Lake. We wish to honor you in our church with as much devotion and faith as you are accorded in your shrines throughout the world. Watch over our spiritual and temporal interests. As one of the 12 Apostles, you spread Christ’s faith and truth far and wide. To this day, here in our parish, we live that faith and truth because our immigrant parents enriched us with devotion to you. You enjoyed intimacy with the divine Master as you listened to His words and experienced daily union with Him. Bring us close to Christ through meditation on His Gospel and devotion to the Holy Eucharist. Speak for us to Jesus that we—sons and daughters of immigrants—may journey through the pilgrimage of life and be conducted by you to the vision of God in Heaven.” AMEN

ASSUMPTION OF MARY INTO HEAVEN— On Friday, August 15th, we celebrate the feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother Mary into Heaven. As a Holyday of Obligation, all Catholics are required to attend Mass, as they would on any Sunday of the year. On this day we commemorate the taking into Heaven of Mary, body and soul, at the end of her earthly life—a truth of our Catholic Faith proclaimed by Pope Pius XII in 1950. This is one of the oldest feasts of Mary, dating back to at least the 7th century when its celebration was already established in Rome and Jerusalem. Thus, on this day we celebrate not only her passing from this earthly life, but also her assumption into the glory of Heaven!

IN GRATITUDE—We are always most grateful to the families who remember the needs of our parish at the time of their great loss. We sincerely thank the family of the late Vincent Lupino for requesting that contributions be made to our parish of St. Bartholomew in his memory on the sad occasion of his recent death. A Mass will be offered in his memory on Sunday morning, August 31st at 11:30 am. May he rest in the peace of Christ!

Before we can serve others we must first make time to be with Jesus—to listen to His word. Our lives are filled with distraction; therefore, it is difficult to find time for prayer. We are called to sit by our Lord, to lovingly gaze upon Him, to hear His message of salvation, Then, in the Spirit, we can extend the love of God to all.
