Kids Outreach Club
The St. Barnabas Youth Group sponsors a number of projects each year, including assembling and delivering care packages for senior citizens and college students away at school, and making Easter baskets for children affected by HIV/AIDS.
Come with a team of parishioners from St. Barnabas as they go to New York City once a month (usually Friday evenings) to feed and clothe homeless people living on the streets. The group leaves the church between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m and returns around 1:30 a.m. Beginning at 7:30 we prepare sandwiches and food bags to be taken on each run.
