100th Anniversary Commemorative Edition Yearbook / Ad Book

As part of the Saint Barbara Parish’s 100th Anniversary Celebration our community is planning on printing a special 100th Commemorative Edition Yearbook/Ad Book.  This special edition will contain much information regarding the 1st century of our parish’s history including photographs.

The committee wishes to provide families with unique opportunity to be a part of this historic publication by submitting an “Ad’ for inclusion in the Yearbook.  

We encourage families to place an ‘Ad’ that includes a family portrait, or a special photo honoring loved ones who have been or continue to be part of our parish.  

These ‘Ads’ can also be used as a wonderful opportunity for Businesses to promote their businesses while supporting the work of the Church.


Sunday School Catechetical Program

The phiolosophy of the Saint Barbara Sunday School program is based on a Chirstocentric approach, which prepares the students with priciples of the Orthodox Faith, encouraging them to grow in God's service.  Our program seeks to build a solid foundation for the children of our community through exemplary lessons in the teaching and worship practices of the Greek Orthodox Faith.
