A Great Connection

StarShine and St. Barnabas Episcopal Church

StarShine is fortunate to have many supporters. Among them is St. Barnabas Church. One of the hats I wear at StarShine is as liaison between St. Barnabas and the school, publicizing and scheduling volunteers. I also serve on the mission (outreach) committee. StarShine is one of twelve missions at St. Barnabas who receive financial aid.

Two important dates are on the calendar at St. Barnabas. On Sunday, February 12th, we celebrate Mission Sunday.  StarShine will be recognized as a mission. We will have an information table where parishioners and visitors can sign up for tours and/or to volunteer.

On February 25th, St. Barnabas will host their annual Hearts and Hands party and silent auction, with proceeds going to all the missions. StarShine will receive their fair share of these funds. Everyone is welcome to attend the Mission Sunday recognition and the Hearts and Hands party. For information, about these celebrations go to Saint Barnabas Church

Many thanks to this wonderful church and to all the parishioners who volunteer and financially support StarShine.
