Dear members and friends of St. Bartholomew's Church, it is sad not to meet again together as family at our different services: Masses, Bible Studies, Choir practices, and other Church meetings and gatherings due to the COVID-19. However, as christians, we have to keep our faith and Hope in God. that is why, as your servant, I want to come to you through this message to let you know that I care for each one of you and also to keep all of us united as we usually are. As to say, we will have all our masses and Bible Studies as usual but online. I will live-stream all masses via St. Augustine's FACEBOOK LIVE and the Bible Studies via ZOOM.
May God bless you all.
Fr. Leon Ngandu, SVD
Since you cannot receive the Holy Communion due to the pandemic of COVID-19, when you attend the online masses, please, say the following prayer at the time of Communion:
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things and I desire You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
As though You were already there,
I embrace You and unite myself to You;
permit not that I should ever be separated from You.
