The Bible is full of stories of Jesus and his disciples breaking bread together and with strangers – not to mention ‘tax collectors and sinners.’ Eating together is not only a sign of community, it creates community.
We not only demonstrate love as we sit at table together, but by getting to know one another more intimately, we learn how to love one another. It is for these reasons that the Sunday Lunch Ministry is so vital to who we are as a parish family and who we strive to become as disciples of Jesus Christ.
So please come, one and all after Sunday Mass, and let’s break bread together.
To volunteer to offer food or to help clean up, please visit the ‘Sign-up Genius’ http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a49adaf29a4fb6-stbarnabas
Or please contact Jasmin O’Brian, our Community Life Minister by phoning the parish office: (250) 595-4324.
The Sunday Lunch is very much an ‘all-hands-on-deck’ ministry, relying on the whole parish.
May we continue to grow in our loving hospitality in Jesus name.
