Here at St. Bart's, we want our children to know from day one that they are known and loved, that they matter, and that they are invited to join with God's people to build a more beloved community—a world where justice, kindness, and compassion reign. We also believe that children have a natural sense of spirituality and that faith is caught more than taught. We offer programs each season to engage our kids in the stories, teachings, and love of Jesus to help grow the faith that is already within them.
This Easter season (April 24 - June 5) we will once again offer StoryMakers at home activity boxes for elementary schoolers. They will be available for delivery or pickup at St. Bart's beginning Sunday, April 24.
StoryMakers is a program designed to bring the stories of the Bible to life in ways that are meaningful, healthy, and fun using seasonal magazines, playbooks, and vibrant visuals designed to open kids' imaginations to the wonder of God' love.
Sign up below to receive an at-home kit to go through at your own pace. We will share weekly videos to accompany the lessons, and we hope that you will tune in with us as we explore the parables of Jesus in the days leading up to Easter. All are welcome - you don't need to be a member of St. Bart's to join in!
St. Bartholomew’s Chorister program was founded in 1995 by reaching out to children and families throughout the five boroughs of New York City. The program consists of thorough musical education and choral training, sustained by rehearsals throughout the week, liturgical singing, concerts, trips, recording projects and an annual late summer choir camp. The Choristers have performed with Betty Buckley, Jessye Norman and St. Bartholomew’s Choir in the annual Joyous Christmas Concert, and they have appeared on NBC’s “Today,” the Early Show, and Good Morning America. To find out if the Chorister program might help develop and support the musical interests of a young person you know, please contact Associate Organist and Choirmaster Alexander Pattavina.
In baptism, we celebrate God's unconditional love, present from the beginning. Parents and godparents commit to raising the child in the way of Christ, and the whole community pledges its support. To reserve a place and plan your child's baptism, contact Peter Thompson, Vicar, at
