Preschool presentation and vote: TODAY, after the Mass in the Hall. We will hear from the provisional board of the preschool with regards to the financial & legal viability & safety of the project, followed by a parish vote (by ballot) whether or not to allow the project to go ahead.
Our new website is up! at the same old address: www.stbarnabaschurch.ca. Among many new features, it includes electronic versions of the Lectionary and the Barnabuzz (on the home page). Our calendar of Masses and Parish events is still available too (under the Who We Are tab). Please direct feedback to the office administrator.
Pentecost is next Sunday! There will be no regular Sunday School classes, as the children will participate in the service. If your children will not be attending on this day, please let Jasmin know. The Sunday Sactuary for June will be at the Parish Picnic in June 11th.
