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.

“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 interest. 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

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 Asia Minor. The last field of his labors was Armenia. Tradition records that he was first flayed and then, in imitation of Christ, crucified. His relics are preserved in the church dedicated to him on the Isola Tibertina, on Rome’s Tiber River. We are honored to call him our PARISH PATRON!

The Solemnity of the Assumption of Our Blessed Mother Mary into Heaven is remembered each year on August 15th. This year it is not a holyday of obligation. 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. This is one of the oldest feasts of Mary dating back to the 7th century when its celebration was established in Rome and Jerusalem. On this special day we remember not only her passing from this earthly life, but also her assumption into the glory of Heaven.

The Annual Bolivian Feast of Our Lady of Urkupina will be celebrated in our parish on Saturday, August 20th at 10:00 am Mass followed by an outdoor procession. Their festivities will continue on our parish grounds until 1:00 pm and on Sunday, August 28th from 12:30 to 6:00 pm. Everyone is invited to a treat of delicious Spanish foods.
