Recognition and celebration took many forms at the anniversary dinner marking the various dedicatory milestones for St. Barnabas. Along with members of the parish and clergy, both Bishop John Chapman of the Diocese of Ottawa and Archbishop Fredrick Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, were on hand to mark the 62nd anniversary of the present church's consecration, and the overarching 125th year of the parish's founding. A key participant in the proceedings at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club last Saturday was Ruth Berry, whose family represents an unbroken line of congregational attendance since 1917, and who, along with the Rev. Canon Stewart Murray, cut the anniversary cake.

One surprise of the evening was a special commendation from Bishop Chapman on behalf of the Diocese to Ronald Bentley, who has faithfully served as the church’s Sacristan for 35 years. In addition to his Sacristy-related duties, he prepares the weekly bulletins, arranges the flowers for the church, and sings in the choir.
