St. Bartholomew’s Church


St. Bartholomew’s Church in Mount Arlington Heights was one of the mission churches of Father Francis Cacciola. It was Father Cacciola that changed the name of the community of Sibley’s Cove to Mount Arlington Heights. This church was originally built around 1929 and was one of the nine mission churches in Placentia Bay that formed the Parish of Bar Haven. The church has been abandoned for years but in 1979 parishioners from Mount Arlington Heights did some major renovations and had the church registered as a Museum. My grandfather, Patrick Norman, worked on the original construction of this building.
