We celebrated our 100th Anniversary on June 8 and 9, 2013. The weekend featured an open house, a banquet supper and program, followed by a special service and a luncheon. We were delighted to have the Bishop, the Right Reverend Shane Janzen, and Moose Jaw Mayor Deb Higgins in attendance for this celebration. Dozens of people attended the celebration, with some coming from as far away as B.C., Alberta, and even Chicago. Commemorative items such as mugs, tote bags, book marks, and stamps were produced to mark the occasion. These items are still available for purchase.
Some people assume that the parish has closed because the former St. Barnabas building is no longer in use. This is not true. Although we no longer worship in our original building, the parish is still going strong. As Bishop Janzen said during the 100th Anniversary:
"Sometimes we confuse a parish with brick and mortar, but that is not what a parish is all about—it is about caring and devout people who span generations...Let us honour our past but let us always look to tomorrow."
