St. Barnabas:

Our Parish, Our Home… the first 40 years

 St. Barnabas Parish, Bayville, New Jersey, was formerly established by the Diocese of Trenton on Sept. 27, 1966.  It was quite evident at the time that Ocean County would need another parish on this side of the Toms River since it was one of the fasting growing counties in the country.  In order to accommodate the growing Catholic population, the Most Rev. George Ahr, Bishop of Trenton, established a new parish to serve the geographical area of Beachwood, Bayville, Pine Beach, Ocean Gate and South Toms River.

Our CHURCH HISTORY FOR THE PAST DECADE

           

         St. Barnabas Roman Catholic Church is celebrating its golden anniversary!  It is most certainly a milestone, and there is much to recall in the history of the last decade.  St Barnabas became a parish on September 27, 1966; in September of 2006 we celebrated our 40th Anniversary; and now ten years later we commemorate 50 years as a parish.
