From the Desk of Father Paul - 6/20/20

Dear Saint Barbara family,
As we ever so slowly open our churches and resume a sense of normalcy, I ask that you please take a moment and read this most worthy request by Elaine Piniat, one of our own, who will be traveling to Sweden on a long term mission trip. 
OCMC will be doing something called Trek4Missions. Usually Father Martin and Father Stephanos from OCMC do a hike annually as a fundraiser. OCMC decided to broaden it this year so that anyone can participate wherever they are. They are challenging parishes nationwide to form a team of up to 20 members to complete 1,200 miles or more by foot, on a bike, or in the water and raise at least $2,000 in five weeks. The funds raised by any teams I create will go toward my mission in Sweden specifically. Registration is free and everyone will get a t-shirt!

I know that we have many exercise enthusiasts within our parish! If anyone wishes to chair this event and work with Elaine, please contact me. This is a very worthy cause and I pray that Saint Barbara will participate.
In His service,
+ Fr. Paul
