Multnomah Days

Multnomah Days are just around the corner and we wish to gauge the congregation’s interest in walking in the parade on August 15. We are already planning to have a booth, but would you be willing to come out with your kids, grandkids, dogs, wagons, bikes, chickens… whatever, and walk behind a St. B’s sign? We could toss some candy, smile and wave, it just might be fun. If you think you might be interested – no commitment required – please tell Fr. Sean or Carolyn Nelson. Thank you!

Pester the Pastor

There have been calls for change, demands for something bigger and better. So, in an act of conciliatory love, the Stump the Priest column has been renamed Pester the Pastor as requested by an unnamed parishioner – don’t get excited the writing hasn’t improved. Now, for this week’s question.

The Food Cart: Mission on Wheels

Each Sunday members of St Barnabas bring food donations to place on the cart in the narthex. Three Sundays a month this food is taken to Neighborhood House, which serves families in SW Portland. On the Sunday before our free dinner, donations are used to fill food bags to give to those in need who come to our dinner. We especially like to include items high in protein, canned vegetables and fruit, and easy to prepare item such as boxed macaroni and cheese, tuna, and peanut butter.

This is an important ministry at St. Barnabas and we invite everyone who feels called to participate. You “CAN” prevent hunger with your donation!
