Hello, everyone! Here is all the info you need to participate in the online Good Friday Episcopal Service from St. Bartholomew’s Church. Join Father Frank Hawkins as we worship together on Facebook this Friday, April 10 at 6:00 PM.
Since St. Bartholomew’s Church began as an Episcopal mission in Hempstead in 1858, we have found a way to come together as a community and hold weekly prayer and mass as often as possible.
We have done this as a community through outbreaks of yellow fever, typhus, measles, polio, and influenza. We are grateful to worship a God that has given us the intelligence to better understand how diseases are transmitted and how to prevent them.
To that end, we are supporting government and Episcopal Diocesan directives to forgo physical gatherings of 10 or more people at St. Bartholomew’s Church for the time being. Instead, we will be conducting virtual services.
To participate, download the March 29, 2020 St. Bartholomew Order of Service below and join us on our Facebook page at 10:00 AM Sunday morning. You can find us on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/stbarthempstead/.
Council delegates will vote on several proposed amendments to the diocese’s constitution and will elect candidates to several positions within the diocese. Of note, Rev. Rhonda Rogers is running for the Executive Board, Clergy and Frederick Roberts is running for Deputy of General Convention, Lay. They are both from St. Francis of Assisi in Prairie View. The St. Bart’s family wishes them great success!
You can read more about all nominations and candidates in the 2020 Nominations list published by the diocese.
Christmas Eve mass at Saint Bartholomew is a tradition for many. It’s a great time to celebrate the birth of our savior while having the chance to catch up with new and old friends alike.
Please join us on Christmas Eve, December 24th, at 6:30 p.m. for carols. Mass starts at 7:00 p.m. and there will be coffee and refreshments after the service.
Saint Bartholomew was one of the first churches established in Waller County. People have been worshiping God and Jesus Christ as part of the St. Bartholomew family since 1861. We still use a baptismal font carved from stone and dedicated to the church in 1891, a dozen years before the Wright Brothers made their first successful flight in 1903. We look back on our traditions with fondness while keeping our eyes on the future and on serving the community of Hempstead and Waller County.
All Saints’ Day is when we remember and commemorate all saints, known and unknown. It is one of the seven principle feasts of the church year. While It occurs on November 1, we will be celebrating All Saints’ Day this Sunday, November 3 at a special Mass at 10:00 a.m., followed by a covered dish lunch.
We’d love to see you!
Everyone deserves a place that feel like home. Find it here.
