Bible Study

Various opportunities for studying the Bible are provided during the year. This allows us to explore and reflect on the meaning of the Scriptures at a deeper level than is possible during Mass. During these sessions there is an opportunity to reflect on how the Word of God can and should impact our daily lives.

Parish Nursing

This program is a health care ministry for St. Barnabas Parish. The ministry encourages each individual’s spiritual, physical, emotional, and social well-being. Through this program we seek to develop creative ways to address needs and identify resources which will help to nurture the body, mind, and spirit of all. The team consists primarily of licensed nurses, other members of health care professions, and anyone interested in participating in activities related to the promotion of health within the parish. The Parish Nursing Office is located in the Parish Center- hours are on Thursdays from 9-12noon.

Religious Education

For more info please refer to our Religious Ed Section of our website. Reverence for each other motivates us to create a religious education program which promotes community, emphasizes Gospel values, encourages daily prayer, and fosters frequent participation in the sacramental life of the Church. We hope that our program will lead all to a deeper commitment to the Church and to an active transformation of the world. This program is intended especially for the children of the parish. Regular classes and consistent attendance should begin in the first grade and continue until the child has celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation. We also offer Whole Family Catechesis, where parents are welcome to come with their children for class and as their children learn a particular topic of faith there is an adult catechist who talks about the same topic with the parents. All adults are invited to this portion of our Whole Community Catechesis sessions. Children need to be registered in our program, adults do not. Registration takes place at different times throughout the summer, please see the bulletin for registration dates or call the parish office. We do not offer ongoing registration, children need to be registered at one of our sessions each year. Volunteer teachers are always needed and must have a criminal background check through fingerprinting. We take care of setting this up and all costs. Please contact us if you would like to register your child, volunteer to teach or attend any of our sessions or classes.
