NOTES FROM YOUR VESTRY
May 19, 2020
Dear Parishioners of Saint Barnabas,
We are all in this together. We have heard this refrain repeatedly over the last two months, echoed throughout our Island community; a call of solidarity. While it is literally true, we are also aware that everyone’s experience and needs are vastly different. Whether we are starting each day wondering how to juggle an array of challenges (from remote work to caring for family members to simply navigating new rules for shopping at T&C), or amongst those whose livelihoods have been lost, or who struggle with loneliness, we are all moving through these strange times as individuals doing the best we can.

Dear St Barnabas Community,
Over the past few weeks we have seen profound changes to our daily lives as COVID-19 moved from a regional outbreak to a global pandemic. This has significantly impacted our parish community, changing the way we socialize, activate and worship. Despite these seismic shifts, we remain resilient; quickly adjusting to virtual meetings and online services. We will continue to adapt as we find our footing in this new reality. We want to recognize that many of these changes can be emotionally and physically challenging for us all.
