Palm Sunday Luncheon and Bake Sale
The Ladies of the Saint Barbara Philoptochos Society are hosting thier Annual Palm Sunday Luncheon on April 24, 2016 immediately following the Divine Liturgy in our Community Center. This year the proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the rebuilding project of the Saint Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center.
Holy Friday Luminaria
Join Saint Barbara Church this year as we prayerfully continue the tradition of Holy Friday Luminaria.
Each parishioner who is able to participate is given the opportunity to place the name of a loved one, living or deceased, on a Luminaria that will be lit on Holy Friday evening. These Luminaria will be placed outside on the pathway of the procession on Holy Friday evening.
A Luminaria (a crisp white bag with votive candle lit inside, each bag will be inscribed with the name of the person you would like to honor, remember, or pray for) and displayed outside in a grouping as a reflection and remembrance of those whom we love and cherish.
Each of us, created in the image and likeness of God, is reflected in the Light Of Christ.
