Celebrating our second Easter service since the start of the pandemic. From left to right: The Rev. Marcus Herrel, The Rev. Kersi Bird, The Rev. Jerrod McCormack, and soloist Archie Adams. The service was followed by Curbside Communion.
With in-person services suspended, parishioners were invited to come to St. Barnabas and receive a communion wafer from reserved sacrament.
Before anyone arrived though, there was a fair bit of snow to re-locate first!
Although unable to worship in person, our outreach group has continued with support of parishioners. Recent endeavours include donating the following items: 340 lbs of books to Calgary Reads in April 2020; groceries and personal care items to Brenda's House/Crisis Nursery in June 2020; fresh grown produce to Hillhust Sunnyside Community Association's Fresh Food program throughout the summer; food items to the Veterans' Food Bank in November 2020; toys to the Toy Mountain campaign in December 2020.
Congratulations to our new deacon, The Rev. Marcus Herrel, who was ordained by The Most Rev. Gregory Kerr-Wilson at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer.
See how parishioners have been keeping busy during the coronavirus pandemic!
An Advent tradition, with Gwendolyn LaRocque as Baby Jesus.
Five generations of parishioners are represented here: baby Gwendolyn is in the arms of her mother Emily Marasco, with grandmother Susan Marasco on the left, and great-grandfather William Butt on the right. They are standing in front of a needlepoint shield crafted by Gwendolyn's great-great grandmother Elsie MacDonald.
Parishioners and neighbours brought their furry family members to this well-loved service.
