There is no shortage of possibilities to experience a range of arts and culture outings in the wide metropolitan area. We should consider calling our outings what many of them really are; pilgrimages. We recently returned to the Met Cloisters to see the fascinating exhibit; “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” Over the past several years groups from St. Barnabas Church have been to The Morgan Library & Museum to see the exhibit “Illuminating Faith” as well as the lovely local gem, the Bruce Museum. Exhibit topics looked at how illuminated manuscripts expressed the sacrament of the Holy Communion and the Seven Deadly Sins. Last fall a pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral saw an enthusiastic bunch of pilgrims venture to the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion. Plans are in the works for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in May, 2020.
St. Barnabas is an active, growing community that provides nurture, support, & guidance to enable all its members to deepen their faith and to carry out Christ's work in the world.
