Resumption of Server Ministry:
Call-out to our Youth to Serve at the Altar
Saint Barnabas Catholic Church is looking for individuals who are interested in serving God and God’s people in a unique way at the weekend masses. The position of altar server is a truly wonderful experience of ministry. Altar servers must be enrolled in third grade or higher, and have received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and First Eucharist. Parents, please click here to complete the form if your son or daughter is interested in serving our parish as an altar server. When you complete the form, you can select Mass preferences and schedule your son or daughter in one of two training dates, which are:
Sunday, August 15 from 1:30-2:15 p.m. in the Church
Sunday, August 22 from 4:00-5:15 p.m. in the Church
The plan is to resume having servers beginning with the August 28-29 weekend Masses. Questions may be directed to Tom Hosty (email@example.com) or Joe Sheehan (firstname.lastname@example.org).

We will continue to practice safety measures inside church by…
• Complying with all state, local, and archdiocesan directives
• Strongly encouraging the wearing of face coverings
• Roping off certain pews for those desiring extra distancing
• Continuing to use best practices in distributing Holy Communion
To assist those who wish to come to Mass but remain outside for most of the Mass…
• Every Mass will be broadcast on our low-power FM station 98.9.
• You are welcome to join the procession for Holy Communion inside the church
If you are available to help out at any of the Masses to usher, as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, lector, etc., please contact email@example.com to volunteer.
