COMMUNITY: Living His Communion Together

Let us offer you His welcome!

“With a tenderness which never disappoints, but is always capable of restoring our joy, He makes it possible for us to lift up our heads and to start anew." -Pope Francis

With Pope Francis, Archbishop Wilton Gregory, and the whole Church of Washington, the community of St. Bartholomew welcomes you to come and share our life with Christ!

Have you been away from the Church? New to the area? Think you’ve received some of the sacraments as a child, but not even sure? Spiritual, but now interested in exploring an experience that’s more concrete?

Come and let us share your life and introduce you to the One who sustains our happiness, joy and communion.

Welcome, and please do come and see!

Pastor:  Fr. Mark Knestout, 301-229-7933

Pastor's Advisory Council (PAC) Chair:  Rollie Flynn, 301-335-2374

Hospitality and New in the Pew Chair: Bonnie Perkins, 301-299-8091
