St. Barnabas Unveils New McDonald Learning Center - May 2008

After months of renovation, St. Barnabas School unveiled its state-of-the-art library/learning center on May18, 2008 with a special dedication ceremony held after 10 o’clock Mass. The library was created in honor of Sheila Doherty-McDonald, a St. Barnabas parishioner and dedicated school volunteer who lost her life to breast cancer in Sept. 2006. The new library combines the traditional aspects of a library with state-of-the-art technology, including seven new iMac computers, a ceiling-mounted LCD projector and a wide-screen television. A new circulation desk, additional tables and chairs for students and a reference area for parents and teachers were also included in the design, making the McDonald Learning Center a wonderful new addition for both students and teachers at St. Barnabas.

Father William Malloy arrived at St. Barnabas a year later, in July 2007, to serve as our new pastor after we bid Father Raymond Tillrock a fond farewell. Father Malloy had previously served as pastor at St. Germaine Parish in Oak Lawn.
