Speed humps are to be placed in Ellison Road, Danbrook Road and Arragon Gardens. This will take place between Thursday 3 and Friday 11 August 2017, depending on the weather. These traffic calming works may involve road closures and diversions, and will undoubtedly make it more difficult than usual to find parking spaces near the church. Please drive and park with care and with thought for others during this period.
Please will all parents wanting to enrol their children in next year’s First Holy Communion Programme collect an application form from the black folder in the porch. The form includes all dates and times for next year. If you take a form, please write your name and your children’s names on the list in that folder.
The dates list is also available to download from our Eucharist Page.
On the evening of Friday 24 June 2017, Bishop Patrick Lynch visited St. Bartholomew's to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation on 42 of our young people. The Mass was a wonderful and uplifting occasion. Bishop Pat commented on how well all the candidates took part and how clearly they made their responses. Congratulations go to all the newly confirmed, their families and their sponsors. Special thanks goes to the team of catechists, who have been preparing the group for the last seven months, and to the priests and altar servers who attended. Please remember our young people in your prayers that, filled with the Holy Spirit, they will go forth and use their newly acquired Gifts in the service of the Lord.
