St Barnabas Tweets!

by L. O’Connor

Our parish was one of the first in the Diocese of Ottawa to open an account on Twitter, in April of 2010. It began as a communications channel for the Music Programme at St. Barnabas. At first, there were just a handful of followers. We now count over 420! Twitter is a social networking – or social media – service that is free for users.
