Parish Annual Meeting

Mark your calendars for Sunday, January 25th for the Annual Meeting. We need your input, your suggestions and your votes to elect two new Vestry members. If you have an inkling that this might be a ministry for you, please talk to Father Sean or Senior Warden Eva Calcagno.

Need a Ride to Church?

St. Barnabas is initiating a ride program for members who cannot drive themselves to church. Our plan is to offer rides once a month, on the third Sunday so that the riders can share in the monthly breakfast before attending the 10:00 AM service. If you are interested in either driving or riding, please e-mail Fr. Sean or call the church office.

Get Ready for Dinners for Eight

Liz Martin and Sean and Melissa Wall are ready to kick-off this new social opportunity. They were pleased with the enthusiastic response of so many members and group assignments will be made soon. These will be casual monthly gatherings of 8 people to allow parish members can get to know each other better. One person within each group will take the role of the convener. This person can host the first month’s meal and make sure that all questions and loose ends are taken care of throughout the four months. Every four months the groups of 8 will be rearranged and new people can sign-up and the process will start again so you get to meet other individuals or couples from the parish. These gatherings are meant to be low key and the primary goal is social – fellowship, food and fun. You can make new friends or get to know “old” friends in a new way. If you have any questions, contact Father Sean in the office.

Knitting Nights

Interested in gathering to knit with fellow needlers? On Monday, January 19th at 7 P.M. bring your knitting projects and gather in Room 1 (lower level of church building) to discuss how this might happen. Questions can be directed to Cathie in the office.
