Faith in the Future Progress Report: The Cohort Team has just completed its first report to the Bishop’s Commission.  Three of the Bishop’s directives were chosen to be worked on.  1. Study the needs of the Hispanic Community within the Cohort and work towards a center for the Hispanics in Southern Ocean County.  2. Identify ministries in each parish, identify their strengths and weaknesses and seek ways that can strengthen each Ministry. 3.  Establish regular meetings between leadership groups such as Pastoral Councils, Business Administrators, Youth Directors, facility managers, etc. to collaborate in ministry whenever possible.  All three directives will be active during our next year of promoting the Faith in our Future program.  It’s a wonderful program and with all the parishioners in the various cohorts participating, it will  make a difference in all of our lives.  Please continue to pray for the implementation team and its success!

***Winter is a particularly challenging time for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our Chapel, not only due to weather, but also because many of our Adorers are snowbirds. It is a time when we heavily depend on substitutes to cover open hours. Please consider being one of our substitutes, even if it is for a short time. All efforts are greatly appreciated. Eucharist Adoration at St. Barnabas takes place in the Chapel Mon-Fri 7am-7pm & Sat.-Sun. 7am-Noon.

If you would like to the Honor of being an Adorer for one of the open hours listed below, or to be added to our Substitute List, call 732-269-2208 X313 and leave a message.  

Holy Hours presently in need of an Adorer are:


Wednesday: Noon to 1pm

Friday:  Noon to 1pm & 5pm to 6pm

 Sunday: 9am to 10am
