Our Saint Barnabas community has always been committed to nurturing the future leaders and young members of our church, and one of the ways we actively support the aspirations of young individuals is through our scholarship aid program. This initiative aims to empower deserving candidates by providing them with the financial means to pursue higher education and unlock their potential.
