At St. Barnabas, the chance to take a day from our busy schedules to reflect on the meaning of faith during Lent has become a Parish tradition. This year on February 20 Sister Debra of the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine will lead a day-long gathering in quiet reflection, called The What, Whys, & Hows of Sharing our Christian Faith in the 21st Century: A Lenten Quiet Day. The event will take place from 9 am to 3 pm. Come for part or all of the day. Soup and refreshments will be provided. Just bring a bag lunch and a desire for a time of learning and reflection.
Easter arrives early this year, on March 27, which means an early Lent as well. All are invited to attend the Parish’s Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on February 9, which will serve as a jovial prelude to the solemnities of Ash Wednesday the following evening.
