During the 1994 genocide Fr. Ubald lost over 80 members of his family and over 45,000 of his parishioners were exterminated. He escaped through the Congo on foot in the middle of the night. When he left Rwanda at that time he made a promise to his Bishop that he would return to bring healing to his people. 

Fr. Ubald has an amazing healing gift and his focus is on healing, forgiveness and evangelization wherever he goes. The Government of Rwanda seeks him out for advice on forgiveness and reconciliation as the country continues to rebuild after the devastation of the genocide. He continues to preach healing in Rwanda, the Congo and Burundi where it is not uncommon for crowds from 10,000-80,000 to come. He has traveled all over Europe, the Holy Land and other parts of Africa. He made his first trip to the United States in 2009, at the request of Immaculee Ilibagiza, author of Left To Tell, another genocide survivor, who currently resides in the US. You may learn more about Fr. Ubald and his work by going to: frubald.com, or his documentary at secretofpeace.com

So please come, bring a friend, and tell others to join us for this special Mass of healing. Fr. Ubald also encourages you to pray for others who cannot attend.  Jesus is not limited to time and space. We look forward to seeing you there.

All Saints Day Masses

All Saints Day Masses, Nov. 1, will be celebrated at 8AM, 10:30AM (School) and 7:30PM. This is a holy day of obligation.

All Souls Day Mass, Nov. 2, will be held at 8AM and 5PM. (Not a holy day of obligation.)

On Sunday, November 3, we will offer a special Liturgy to honor all the deceased souls of our parish who have gone before us, and, in particular, the deceased whose Funeral Mass was celebrated at St. Bartholomew Church from November 2018 to date. Family members who attend will be given the wooden Cross bearing the name of their beloved deceased, that has been in place on our Memorial Wall in the rear of the Church since the time of his/her funeral.

Remember our 8PM Sunday Mass!

Remember that St. Bart's hosts the last Sunday Mass in Montgomery County at 8.00 p.m. with music by a professional Christian Rock Band. See some pictures HERE! If you have been away for the weekend, taken a vacation, or had to catch a sporting event, our 8.00 p.m. Sunday Liturgy offers you the perfect opportunity to go to Mass.
