The Saturday before Easter, the St. Barbara Knights of Columbus sponsor an Easter egg hunt. The Easter egg hunt is open to all St. Barbara parishioners and the community.
Every August we gather together to celebrate with a parish wide picnic and car show. Parishioners are invited to bring their cars, trucks and other show vehicles. A bar-b-que lunch is provided and everyone enjoys using the water balloon launcher. This is a great opportunity for fellowship and community building.
Every October, crafters from all across the region, bring their wares to the Annual Artisan Bazaar. The display of hand made specialty craft items is truly unique. Baked good as well as a variety of soups and other food items are also available. For information on how to become a vendor or for information on dates and times, please contact the parish office at 360-886-2229 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The St. Barbara Advent Celebration takes place the first Sunday of Advent at 11:00 AM in the Parish Hall. St. Nicholas visits for pictures with children and families, listen to the choir sing, make some Advent crafts, and enjoy tasty treats provided by the Circle of Joy. All are welcome to attend.
Every December, from the third week in Advent through the Epiphany, Fr. Dave displays his beautiful collection of Nativity scenes. These Nativities celebrate the birth of Christ. Many different styles and artistic forms are displayed. Nativities are displayed in the Narthex and can be viewed before and after all weekend Masses.
Twice a year we hold a special luncheon for our new parishioners. This is our way of welcoming them to our parish and to get to know them better. If you have joined our parish recently, look for your invitation. It's a great time to get to know your pastoral council, Fr. Dave and our St. Barbara Staff. If you'd like to be on the list to help at the luncheons, or to receive notice about our upcoming luncheon, please call Kristin Habenicht at 425-435-1610.
