The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has developed a Marriage Enrichment Program, Living the Promise: The First 5 years. This program is available to all parishes in the archdiocese to assist young couples in developing concepts, techniques and tools to strengthen the bond of a sacramental marriage and to develop a community of like-minded couples. The Office of Family life has been working on the program for a year and the team of presenters are ready to go live!

Give your first and last names, an email address, a phone number, and your wedding anniversary date. . Please state that you want to attend the Marriage Enrichment Program.

New Pillows and Pillow Case Drive

pillows3As you are aware, the Project Achieve Ministry at St. Barnabas cooks and serves meals for 60 shelter residents, 6 times a month.
Over time, many items at the shelter become worn down from use and repeated washing. This Easter, we are looking to help the shelter in an additional way, by donating NEW pillows and pillow cases for our friends at Project Achieve.
If your family is interested in donating either item, our goal is to collect the following before Easter.
(This is a great mini service project for your children to pick out an item from a local store/do so as a family)

  • 60 NEW Pillows (standard size, white in color please)
  • 60 NEW Pillow Cases (standard size please, neutral colors preferred: white, tan, gray, but any color is appreciated)

Ministry members will be collecting these items at the LUNCH BENCHES across from the school office from 8am-1:30pm on:   ***Sunday, March 11th***
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ministry Coordinator:  Michelle Smithson (cell: 310.344.7862). God Bless You For Your Heart To Help Those In Need!
