Our Community Dinner is Saturday, July 9

July marks our annual Community Dinner BBQ. We cook up burgers & hot dogs, corn on the cob, cole slaw, watermelon & ice cream and eat outside. It is great fun and the weather is forecast to be wonderful, so please join us. Service begins at 5:00 p.m. and clean-up at 6:00 p.m. No need to come early and stay late, an hour or two at any time during the afternoon is a big help. Thanks!

Christmas in June is Here!

During the month of June, the Women of St. Barnabas will be collecting cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items for the women and children at West Women’s and Children’s Shelter. These items can be placed in the decorated Christmas box in the narthex of the church. The shelter is always in need of new supplies, and they are always very grateful for St. Barnabas’s contributions. A list of suggested donation items is on the side of the box and fliers available in the narthex.

Our Community Dinner is Saturday, June 11

Please join St. Barnabas’ signature ministry. We feed 40-50 people every month and it takes many people to prepare the food, set the tables, serve the meal and clean up. The more hands on deck the better. Food preparation begins at 2:00 PM, food service begins at 5:00 and clean-up at 6:00. No need to come early and stay late, an hour or two at any time during the afternoon is a big help. Thanks!

St. B’s Team at Loaves & Fishes

St. B’s Team at Loaves & Fishes at Multnomah Center each 2nd Wednesday, 9:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Multnomah Days

Multnomah Days is August 20 and we are planning to participate in the parade again. However, we will not sponsor a booth this year. So, mark your calendars and get out your walking shoes. Let Fr. Sean know if you would like to purchase t-shirts again. We can try a different design/color depending on the wishes of the congregation.

Community Dinner Coordinator(s) Needed

For the last seven years, St. Barnabas has been hosting a Community Dinner, where every second Saturday we prepare and serve a nutritious dinner to parishioners, neighbors, and those in our community who are having trouble putting food on the table consistently. We also provide food and personal item bags for those people who need them. Originally, we had the assistance of parishioners from St. John the Baptist, but they dropped out of the program a couple of years ago to pursue other opportunities.
