On Saturday we held our most successful fundraising jumble sale to date, raising over £1,000 for St Barnabas.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered over Friday/Saturday and gave in items for us to sell. We were busy throughout the afternoon. It was lovely to meet and welcome so many members of our community into St Barnabas.

We had lots of delicious cakes baked and donated to our tea, cake and toasties stall. They really kept the volunteer's and buyer's energy levels up so the selling and buying could continue. Thank you bakers!

Our Harvest Festival Service took place today. Thanks to our young people for taking part in the service through procession, readings and helping to bring Father Brian's sermon to life with some role playing!

We will keep some of the donated perishable items and toiletries for those who come to St Barnabas in need. The majority will be taken to The Dunloe Center at St Saviour's Priory which we are committed to helping throughout the year.

Father Brian will also be leading Harvest Festival services at Chisenhale, St John's, Bonner and Olga Schools and their donations will also be offered to the Sisters.

Please continue to bring in any donations throughout the year - there is always a need to help those less fortunate.

St Barnabas Bethnal Green

This week at St Barnabas, we held the Transitus. The Transitus is an ancient prayer service celebrated each year by Franciscans around the world on the night of October 3rd. This is the vigil of the Feast of St. Francis and is a night to commemorate the death of our beloved Saint Francis of Assisi and his entry into God’s eternal glory. Transitus is a Latin word that means passage or crossing over.

The Transitus is truly a celebration of life and hope for all Franciscan women and men and those who share with us a Franciscan heart and spirit. While the Transitus recalls the events of the final moments of Francis’ life on earth, it is a remembrance of his total journey and his ongoing conversion in penitential life and love which transformed him internally and externally, physically and spiritually into an image of Christ crucified. In every account written on the death of St. Francis, it is remembered that he crossed over from life on earth to eternal life with the Lord, full of great joy and song.”
