Got Veggies?

The St. Barnabas vegetable garden is ready to plant; in fact there are already tomatoes and beans growing. Father Sean will bless the garden following the June 7 services. If you would like to donate plants to the garden, please bring them on Sunday. We can always use volunteers for watering, weeding and harvesting. Contact Carolyn Nelson if you can help.

Would you like to be a Lector or a Eucharistic Minister?

If so, there will be several training opportunities in the next month; dates are Sunday May 31 at 11:30, Thursday June 4 at 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM. Please contact Fr. Sean if you are interested. All current Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers are required to attend training as well. Thank you for your service to our congregation!

Please contact the church office with details so that we may include your graduate (name, school, major, honors/awards, clubs, next step, etc.). If you would like to help with coffee hour, please see the sign-up in Grafe Hall.
