I thank everyone who helped make this past Lent and Holy Week such a moving and prayerful experience: our liturgy planners, sacristans, musicians and choirs, living station players, readers, ushers, servers, artists, and ministers who contributed their considerable gifts to our liturgical celebrations. Thanks, also, to the many people who attended Mass each morning, prayed the rosary, walked the Way of the Cross, supported Operation Rice Bowl, were reconciled to the Lord during the forgiveness service, and celebrated the powerful events of Holy Week together. Ours was truly a pilgrimage with Jesus to the cross and the empty tomb, and I pray your hearts are now filled with peace. Together with the parish staff, I pray for the family of St. Barnabas, that Easter joy will fill your hearts, be a blessing to all those you love, and bring you true and lasting happiness. HAPPY EASTER!!

St. Barnabas Family Timeline
As a part of our 90th Anniversary celebration, we created a timeline banner
, spanning 1924 to 2014, and invite parishioners to document the year their family joined St. Barnabas Parish. As families mark the year they joined the parish, the banner will grow to show our parish family history. Before or after mass this weekend, please visit the banner at the back of church and add your family name.

The Barnabas Minute
Some of the most memorable moments during St. Barnabas' 75th Anniversary were our parishioners' short stories and memories of faith, family, and friends - The Barnabas Minute. During our 90th year, we are reviving this celebration of our history and who we are as a parish. We invite you to participate and share your story, which will be read during mass, printed in the bulletin, and added to our website. Stories should be approximately 150 words and emailed to Monica Wilczak
or Fran Kelly
or mailed to the rectory.
