      ANOINTING OF THE SICK 
      First Saturday 8:30am in the Church

      The Sacrament of Anointing is the proper sacrament for those whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age. Through this sacrament the Church supports the sick in coping with their illness and continues our Lord’s work of healing. This sacrament is available during the Mass on the First Saturday of each month. The elderly, the seriously ill and those preparing for major surgery are urged to take advantage of this opportunity.

      Capital Campaign Phase II
      Phase II of our Capital Campaign, to pay for the construction of our new Parish Center, is a three-year campaign that runs through Dec. 2015. If you have not yet pledged, it is not too late to support this project.
       
      More information & Pledge forms here. 

      Mas informacion y promesa aqui el formulario.  


      We have printed special "yellow" envelopes to be used for all Phase II pledge payments. Parishioners who receive envelopes in the mail from OSV will get a few of these special envelopes in their packet every other month.  If you need more, or if you are not signed up for OSV envelopes, additional "yellow" envelopes are available in the Narthex or at the Parish Office.  Using these special envelopes for your pledge payments will make it easier for us to record and track donations to Phase II of our Capital Campaign.

      If you make a Phase II donation without a yellow envelope, please write your parish ID# and the words "Capital Campaign" on the memo line of your check.



      Make your giving easier by signing up for automatic payments through www.parishpay.com.  It is easy to set up.  Select "register" underneath LOGIN and search by zipcode 77493.  Use the St. Bartholomew - Katy account for regular giving and second collections, and for Phase II of our Capital Campaign. Create a username and password.  You can make changes later as needed.  (PLEASE do not use The Pray Grow Give account, it was for Phase I pledges.) 
       

      Have You Run Out of
      Contribution Envelopes?

      We no longer give out boxes of envelopes from the office, instead, pre-printed contribution envelopes are mailed directly to parishioners, from the company "Our Sunday Visitor".  Please call the parish office to be added to this mailing list.  We are currently updating this list and DELETING the names of parishioners who are not using their envelopes regularly. If you find that you are no longer receiving envelopes and would like to be put back on the mailing list, please call Diana at the parish office, 281-391-4758 ext. 410. 

      Fund Designation is Important!
      When you intend for your contribution to go into a specific fund, such as the Capital Campaign or Building Fund, or for a special collection, please mark your intention on your contribution envelope or check.  If we cannot determine which fund you intended, there may be a discrepancy in your contribution statement.

      Anointing of the Sick

      If you are seriously ill or will be entering the hospital, you are invited to receive the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick at 8:30am Mass on the first Saturday of the month, or by appointment. It is the Catholic belief that sacramental anointing provides both spiritual and physical strength. Please call the parish office to request a hospital or home visit.

      Sacramento de la Unción de los Enfermos
      Si usted está seriamente enfermo o va a ser ingresado al hospital, usted está invitado a recibir el Sacramento de la Unición de los Enfermos cada primer sábado del mes en la Misa de las 8:30am, o por cita a cualquier otra hora. La fe Católica nos dice que este sacramento provee fortaleza tanto fisica como espiritual.  Llame a la oficina Parroquia si necesita una visita al hospital o en su casa.

      Communion for the Sick
      If you or a loved one are homebound or in the hospital, we can bring the Eucharist to you on Sunday. Call the parish office to arrange a visit.
