Faith Resources & Links
St. Bartholomew is an apostle, likely also known as Nathaniel. There are little scriptural details of his life, but in John’s Gospel, Jesus recognizes him as being true, he is who he is without fanfare, deceit, or false appearances.
As a parish, we pride ourselves upon his model of faith, to be true to the Church, devoted to Christ, and always authentic!

Resources on the Revised Roman Missal:
Starting Sunday November 27th 2011 we started using the revised words we pray at Mass.
New Words, Same Meaning – by adusting some of the words we are able to more fully express our faith while being true to the Latin and being closer to other languages spoken in the Catholic Church. It is a new translation, not a new Mass, the heart of what we believe and celebrate at Mass is not changing, we are simply expressing it with some different words.
www.usccb.org/romanmissal has many articles and resources regarding the new translation.
