6/24/16- Bob Spitzer Wins Volunteer of the Year Award from PADS! This will likely come as no surprise but our very own Bob Spitzer was chosen as one of four "Volunteers of the Year" for PADS! Bob has inspired, organized and lead St. Barnabas Church in hosting 8-10 weeks over the past several summers. He has been able to recruit support from other faith-based communities as well, which has inspired some of them to have heir own PADS sites. Bob works year-round as a PADS volunteer at other sites often in the difficult overnight slots. He has counseled and mentored other group leaders on how to run a successful site. Bob truly has a heart for the homeless and spends a fair amount of his personal time counseling and supporting individuals and families. His organization and attention to detail are second to none and his openness to share the Mercy of Christ with others is such a blessing to all of us here at St. Barnabas. Under Bob's leadership we are looking forward to another summer of serving the homeless here at St. Barnabas. Congratulations Bob and God Bless!

5/13/16- On Saturday, May 21 at 11:00 am there will be a diocesan wide Confirmation at St. James Cathedral downtown. This year six people from St. Barnabas will be received into the church or confirmed at that service. These people have been a part of our Newcomer's Gathering on Wednesday evenings. Our candidates for reception and confirmation are quite exited about this event. Please join us at St. James to support them in this new phase of their Christian walk.
