Peace be with You!


Welcome to the website for St. Bartholomew Roman Catholic Church in Manchester, MD. Here you will find information on Mass times, faith formation programs, as well as the various groups and ministries in our parish community. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Daily/Weekend Masses and Activities in the Parish Center have been canceled until further notice.

Adoration will be available on Fridays in the new church from  9:00am-6:00pm. Confessions will be available in the sacristy behind the Altar, 9am-10am.
As you may know, Governor Hogan issued some new restrictions on March 23th. These guidelines have now included Church offices: “Church offices are not considered ‘essential businesses’ and thus must be closed to the public and remain closed until this restriction is lifted by the State of Maryland.”
We want you to know that each day a staff member will be checking the mail, listening to the recording and checking the black locked mailbox on the front porch of the Parish Center, so please continue to drop off your envelopes and/or any donations, which are GREATLY appreciated so that our Parish may continue to operate financially.  Also thank you to all who are giving electronically through our
Parish Giving link on this website.
The staff will be working remotely from their homes.
During this time, if you need to speak with:
Fr. Michael Roach, please call him at the Rectory, 410-239-8207.

Rev. Michael Roach | Pastor |

Shirley Mangold | Parish Secretary |
