The Million-Dollar Question: when can we return to worship at our beloved church home?

While we simply don’t know right now, here is some data that is guiding us at this time:


The Bishop’s Taskforce for Re-Gathering published this document to the Diocese in May:

Gathering for Abundant Life Plan


You can view the statistics guiding us here at the
AZ Dept. of Health Services website.


The Bishop followed up with this video summary of the document:


Our Saint Barnabas Taskforce for Re-Gathering submitted our plan to the Diocese and received approval on July 2, 2020.

You can read our plan here:


Saint Barnabas Gathering for Abundant Life Plan


and please offer your thanks to the committee members who worked hard to create this, and are continuing their work to develop the execution plan to make all of this happen!
