About Our Parish

Saint Bartholomew Catholic Church offers its parishioners a rich continuum of faith formation opportunities, including sacramental preparation for children, youth, and adults. Under the spiritual guidance of the pastor, Rev. Michael Reardon, this parish features an adult faith formation program offering guest speakers, retreats, field trips, and vibrant liturgies. Known fondly as “St. Barts,” this parish has grown to serve more than 1,700 families during its 77 year history.

Under the patronage of the Apostle Saint Bartholomew, this parish was dedicated on March 12, 1939 by Rev. John J. Cantwell, D.D., Archbishop of Los Angeles. Saint Bartholomew has been led by eight pastors—three of whom participated with Archbishop José H. Gómez and Auxiliary Bishop Oscar Solis in the con-celebration of its Diamond Jubilee Mass in 2012. 

Saint Bartholomew was designed by Thomas Franklin Power, a prominent and prolific Los Angeles-area architect. Power’s design for the parish featured two structures on a triangular parcel—the church on the eastern end and a parish hall on the western end. The handsome pair of buildings were an updated Tudor-style. Over the years, the church has been meticulously preserved, remodeled, and updated with the addition of a side chapel, children’s cry room, and complementary furnishings and art work.

The parish includes an offsite Faith Formation Center for youth at 4545 E. 4th Street in Belmont Heights. Formerly, at this site were Saint Bartholomew’s elementary school and convent that closed, and the remainder of this parcel was sold and redeveloped.
