Parish Mission Statement
St. Barbara Parish carries on the faith tradition estab-lished in 1894 by our Slovenian and German ancestors. Like our founders, we are called by Baptism to live as ex-amples of Catholic faith and values, and as witnesses of Christ in the world. Our parish is small in size but great in heart. We are a diverse community who together seek to strengthen faith through liturgy and education, and through service to community in charity. We strive to love God with all our hearts and minds.
Pray for the Sick
Pray for the sick of our parish, our family and friends, especially Leslie Joyce, Andrea Lit-tlejohn, Elizabeth McKeever, Elaine Fields, Joan Crum, Geoff Skundrich, Karen Recrosio, Gloria Fortunato, Edna Koczaja, John Pulford, Mary Rosato, Ann Mary Mazzocco, Kathy DAmico, Sophie Kramzer, and those in nursing homes and their caregivers; the return of inactive mem-bers of our parish to the practice of their faith; the re-spect of all human life and the end of abortions. We pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and for their families at home. Call the rectory office if you are homebound or in a nursing home and would like to receive Communion or if you are a patient in a hospital and would like a visit from a priest, please call 412.221.5152.
