16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 17th, 2016

Page 1.

Before we can serve others we must first make time to be with Jesus – to listen to his word. Our lives are filled with chaos, noise, and distraction; therefore, it is very difficult for us to find space and time for prayer. We are called, like Mary, to sit by our Lord, to lovingly gaze upon him, so we are able to hear and heed his message of salvation. Then, in the spirit of Martha, we will be able to extend the hospitality and love of God to all our brothers and sisters.

25th - 40th - 50th & over 50 years of marriage
The Office of Marriage Preparation & Enrichment is sponsoring their annual Wedding Anniversary Celebration honoring couples of the Diocese of
Providence, whose marriage is recognized by the Church, celebrating their 25th, 40th, 50th, and over wedding anniversaries in 2016. The Wedding
Anniversary Celebration will be celebrated on Sunday, September 25th at 1:00 pm at the
Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul in Providence. The celebration will include Mass, renewal of marriage vows, and a personalized certificate. Bishop Thomas J. Tobin will be the Main Celebrant and Homilist. Following the Mass, a reception will be hosted for the couples and their families. Couples who would like to attend can register for this special event through their Parish Office, 944-4466 before August 20th.

Annual Parish Feast & Festival
Yes, our annual Feast in honor of St. Bartholomew is just a few weeks away and will run from Friday,
August 12th through Sunday, August 14th on our
Parish grounds. All parishioners can certainly add to the financial success of our Feast by purchasing or selling three books of tickets for our raffle. You can also help by purchasing our $100 Booster ticket as an individual or as a family, or even contribute to the “Feast Food & Flour Fund.” Every little bit helps!
Thank you!

“AND THE BAND PLAYED ON” – and it will again this year for the beautiful and memorable RELIGIOUS PROCESSION in honor of our Patron, St. Bartholomew, on Sunday, August 14, following the 10:30 am Feast Mass. We are continuing a favorite tradition with the “RI VETERANS BAND” proudly playing as parishioners and friends solemnly process to the site of our former church. Please be generous in the Second Collection on July 23 & 24 to help defray the cost of the musicians. Your support in this Special Collection will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

FEAST FOOD TICKETS – A $10.00 sheet of Food Tickets to be used at our Parish Feast & Festival can be purchased at a special early-bird price of only $8.00 if purchased from the Parish Office before August 8th. Enjoy the variety of delicious foods and pastries at our Feast!
