Who’s the Boss?

While having their dinner together, a little girl looked up at her father and asked, “Daddy, you’re the boss in our family,                                          right?” The father was very pleased to hear it and confidently replied, “Yes my little princess.” The girl then continued,                                            “That’s because mommy put you in charge, right?”

Food Bank

During June we will continue to collect nonperishable food for Ste Louise Outreach, a 37 year old charity functioning and thriving for families who are in dire need.

Their wish list contains: 

oil, vinegar, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard

Kids items:formula (not jar food), juice boxes,peanut free snacks, diapers (sizes 4+)

Personal Items: toilet paper, toothpaste/brushes, body/dish soaps, body wash, shampoo /conditioner, razors & laundry soap

If you would prefer to provide a monetary donation, (and thus receive a tax receipt through St Barts) you may make cheques out to St Bartholomew’s United Church and note on the bottom of the cheque that it is for Ste Louise.  Rent and utilities need to be paid to keep their premises open.


Oliver House Bingo – Sat., Jun 9th

This annual event was rescheduled from April when several residents were ill at Oliver House.

Heather Ross joined seven Outreach members for an afternoon of serious bingo.  We had a slow start with only 14 residents joining us but by the end of the afternoon, similar to former years, we had 29 folks playing.  

When it was time for chips & pop, several others joined in. As always, chocolate & candy were favourite prizes.

Celebrating Father’s Day 

The small boxes of treats given out by the Sunday School children today have been prepared by your Outreach team – a token to honor the fathers in our congregation.  

Additionally, we have given a donation to SHARE Agriculture Foundation, the Caledon charity providing opportunities and resources to help people help themselves. Using the “Pass On” principle, those helped assist others, thus ensuring healthy communities where people can improve their life through their own efforts.  Their focus is in Central & South America.

 Happy Father’s Day!!







Starting July 1st our summer worship services will begin at 10am..



The ushers and greeters at St. Bart’s are dedicated to making you feel welcome. Our ushers and greeters are available at every worship service to help people find their seats, answer questions, remove distractions, pass out or collect materials and, of course, offer a friendly smile and a warm handshake. We are always in need of more ushers and greeters, so if you are interested in helping, please sign up in Balsdon Hall today!
