A thought about our parish history.....
The cine footage below is of the First Mass of Father Gerald Coates at St. Bartholomew’s on Trinity Sunday, 13 June 1954 - there is no sound. Canon Coates passed away on 10 October 2017. Requiescat in pace.
How much do you know or recall about the history of St. Bartholomew’s, or the priests that have served the parish since its inception? Are you able to add anything to our knowledge? Do you have any memories, or old photographs, or maybe even cine film footage? We’d love you to get in touch with us if you have!
June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
The Sacred Heart of Jesus is the revelation of God’s immense love for us. It is often depicted as a fiery furnace, pierced and broken, but beating with love. The Sacred Heart is also a profound reminder of the humanity of our Lord, for his heart is not a mere symbol, but a true physical reality.
