  • Then off to class for approx. 20-25 min.
  • Returning for Communion with family.
  • Refreshments following! (contributions always welcomed).

PAR: Pre-Authorized Remittance Update
  • THE LEADERSHIP TEAM thanks those of our community that have signed up for the preauthorized giving initiative and apologize for the length of time it has taken for this program to become active.
  • At the present moment, the Diocese is in the process of making some changes to the program and does not wish to add any new participants until the changes are complete.
  • The most up to date information we have is that the diocese should be ready to move forward in early fall. At that point, the leadership team will be in contact with everyone who has signed up to advise them on the date when withdrawals from their banks will start.
  • For those who are still considering being part of this initiative, signup forms are at the back of the church. We would encourage you to speak to a member of the leadership team if you have any questions.

  • Are you being called? Are you being called to join St. Barnabas’ Visiting Ministry Team? We want to expand this important ministry within our parish. Please speak to Barb Wilkins or the clergy.
  • Sing any hymn you want any time! text with music accompaniment here »
Following The Way of Jesus here at St Barnabas connects us with the beauty of what is holy and true. We share the heart of our patron Barnabas in service to the dispossessed and advocacy for the marginalized.

We seek to open the heart and enliven the mind through literature, art, music and study. We derive nourishment from roots that link us with the wisdom and spiritual practices of many ages. We celebrate creativity and excellence in choral music.
