Welcome back! We hope you have had a summer of many graces!

Registration for all grades pre-K-12 is available and open now! REGISTER HERE!

There are more options for you to choose from this year:

1. Sunday morning standard catechesis, 9:45-10:45am: Kindergarten through sixth grade. Choose this if you want the classroom experience for your children you are used to. Remember that you are the most important teachers, and what we do is only to help you have good and holy conversations at home!

2. Sunday evening Suns of Encouragement (SoE) Youth Ministyr, 6:30-8:15pm: seventh through twelfth grade. This is for the youth who want more than only catechesis, but also a change to build Catholic friendships, grow in holiness of life through prayer, leadership opportunities and service to others.

3. Tuesday or Wednesday evening Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, 4:30-6:30pm: ages 3-9. Choose this if your children would benefit from a hands-on Montessori style of meditative learning. The goal if for your children to fall in love with the Lord.

4. Saturday Youth Catechesis, 6:00-6:50pm: seventh through twelfth grade. This is geared toward those youth who need to prepare for a Sacrament but would prefer only catechesis without anything else. Choose this if it will make it easier for your family to go to Mass every week and have catechesis.

St. Barnabas' name means "Son of Encouragement", and he lived up to his name on his missionary journeys with St. Paul. We are also called to be missionaries who share the Gospel or "Good News" of Jesus to the world which is so hungry for true love, joy and truth. We have the good news! May we be little reflections of God to others, or "Suns of Encouragement" in the example of our patron.

This is our name and our calling. SoE!

Dear Fellow St. Barnabas Parishioners,
We are excited about being at St. Barnabas Church and back in western North Carolina! We met in the late 1970s in the operating room at a Catholic hospital in Youngstown, Ohio and were married on September 11, 1981. We are both retired now - Deacon Chuck was a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) and Rose was an operating room nurse. Deacon Chuck liked to joke and tell everyone that he could put you to sleep in the operating room and also during a homily! We’ll let you be the judge… In 1982, we began moving for work; after spending time in South Carolina and Charlotte, where Deacon Chuck served at St. Patrick Cathedral after he was ordained by the late Bishop John Donoghue on June 18, 1988, we moved to western North Carolina in 1991. Deacon Chuck served at Immaculate Conception Church in Hendersonville before we moved to Colorado in 1995, again for job opportunities. Deacon Chuck worked primarily in rural hospitals and served in several parishes in the Colorado Springs and Pueblo Dioceses. Rose worked from home for the professional association of operating room nurses as a medical writer and education seminar planner/facilitator. We were out west in Colorado and Arizona until relocating to Florida to be near family in 2019. But after the 2020 summer lockdown, we realized we needed a more diverse (ie, cooler!) climate. Fortunately, the Lord led us back to western North Carolina where we found a house in a very serene setting and a parish home at St. Barnabas. We look forward to serving and getting to know everyone and respectfully ask for your prayers, as you are in ours.

We now have an online form to submit or remove names of those to pray for the bulletin or read at Mass.
You will find it under the ABOUT menu, and here is the link as well:

Last week St. Barnabas Catholic Church was included in a WLOS segment about the Catholic Church and the Diocese of Charlotte.
