On Monday 29 July, pilgrims from our parish will set off for Walsingham. If you would
like any prayer intentions to be taken on pilgrimage, please let Fr Ben or Fr Thomas
know. Please note, we’re now departing from St Paul’s Church. Please come to the back
entrance on Russell Place.


PRAYING THE ROSARY: Monday 5 August, 6pm
We gather to pray a set of mysteries of the Holy Rosary at St Bart’s.

We are invited to St Michael and All Angels Church, Victoria Road, for Solemn Mass on this solemnity. Mass begins at 7pm.

The Assumption

We are invited to celebrate St Bartholomew’s Day at our sister church with Solemn Mass at which Bishop Philip North of Blackburn will preside and preach. Please make a note of this date and make every effort to come along.

St Bartholomew

On Saturday 14 September, our church, like a number of others across Sussex, will be open for people to visit as part of Ride & Stride, a very worthwhile campaign to raise money for the upkeep of our beautiful inheritance of church buildings. It would be very good to support any of you who feel able to walk or cycle around however many churches you wish. Sponsorship forms are available at the back of church. For more information, do visit the website of the Sussex Historic Churches Trust

Ride & Stride

Our city’s food bank is in considerable need of more donations. We have been asked to flag the particular need for tinned meat, fish, tomato and vegetables as well as pasta, rice, tinned fruit, tinned desserts and instant coffee. Supporting the needy is an integral part of our Christian discipleship, so if you can offer some help, please take your donations to the food bank, which is located at the Calvary Church, BN1 4NJ. Alternatively, if you wish to donate a sum of money for the food bank to then spend on what they need, you can do so using the link:

We now know that it will cost £85 a head to attend Fr Ben’s licensing at Walsingham on Saturday 16 November. This covers accommodation, food and transport costs. We will leave Brighton in a minibus and a number of cars at lunchtime on Friday 15 November, stay overnight at the Shrine and then return after lunch on the Saturday. We now need a £10 deposit per person to be paid by Sunday 28 July. For those of you intending on coming, please would you pay this amount by BACS to ‘St Bartholomews PCC’, 30-91-25, 00742253. Please also email Fr Thomas once you have done this. The remaining balance will need to be paid to St Bart’s by Sunday 1 September.
