Calling All Men

Gentlemen: join other men of the parish in bringing some joy, exercise, and FUN to our children at youth by helping build a GaGa Ball Pit at Saint Barnabas! The workday starts at 7am with gathering and breaking into teams for the various jobs, and continues through the morning and day to finish the project. RSVP online at or email Dick Scott at


GaGa Ball is believed to have originated in Israel, and has slowly spread across the USA over several decades. Ga means ‘hit’ or ‘touch’ in Hebrew. In the rules of GaGa Ball, the ball must touch the ground two times before it is considered ‘in play’, hence the name. GaGa Ball consists of a lightweight bouncy or foam ball and an octagon enclosure known as the GaGa Ball Pit. The object of the game is to hit the ball at or below opponents’ knees to eliminate them from the pit. The last one left in the pit is the winner.
