Dear Friends in Christ,
Welcome to Holy Innocents-St. Barnabas parish family. You are now part of a dynamic and faith-filled community which God has blessed in so many ways.
Our prayerful worship is our highest priority. Many people have made great sacrifices so that we may continue to praise God in our parish. In our celebration of the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, we thank God for His great goodness to us and all His people. I want to welcome you to our website. I hope that this website may be a help for you to further your relationship with our loving Lord. It is our sincere hope that you will find this both helpful and informative about all the events and activities that make up our parish community.
If I, or any member of our parish staff, can be of service please do not hesitate to ask. Be assured of my prayers, and please pray that we will be the community God calls us to be.
May God bless you.
Yours in Christ's peace,
Rev. John P. Wynnycky

Thank You Letter
Thanks to the generosity of the students and parishioners at Holy Innocents/St Barnabas Parish our annual Halloween celebration was a huge success again this year! Our neighbors turned out faithfully to celebrate with us, with roughly 2,500 attending again this year! From the very young to the "young at heart", all had a great time playing games, high fiving, praying with each other and sharing laughs. I have attached some pictures to give the Holy Innocents/ St Barnabas Parish community a glimpse into the beautiful joy they brought to the hearts (and faces) of so many of our wonderful neighbors. There were too many great moments to share in one email, so I hope these pictures help to capture them just a bit.
Again, thank you so much for your generosity in making the day, week or even year of so many of our young neighbors, and for helping their parents and grandparents experience the joy of seeing them so excited. None of this could be possible without you and your kind support. Thank you for sharing your missionary spirit, as Pope Francis so often encourages! Please keep us in your prayers as we do you.
