500 Minutes of Service

Remember whenever you’re in a position to help someone, be glad and always do it… because that’s God answering someone else’s prayer through you. St. Barnabas students participated in “500 Minutes of Service” as a school. The grades worked together to assist with a number of local and international charities.

  • Preschool collected $259.48 to send to the World Wildlife Foundation, Australia to “help the kangaroos get food,” and to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Australia to help the displaced families.
  • 2nd and 5th grades made 57 cards/letters/pictures for senior citizens at Bixby Knolls Towers, and 8 blankets for the homeless.
  • Kinder and 8th grades made Valentine cards for Miller’s Children’s Hospital, Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital in Baltimore, and Georgetown Children’s Hospital in Washington DC. They also made 3 prayer blankets for families in need of blessings.
  • 1st and 7th grades had a Jump-A-Thon to benefit the Fund for the Retired Religious. Total to date is $600.00.. wow!
  • 3rd and 6th grades made 136 sack lunches (peanut butter and jelly sandwich, cutie orange, and a granola bar) for Long Beach Rescue Mission. Each lunch had a nice handmade message of kindness.
  • T-K and 4th grades made 100 sock kits of toiletries (soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, etc.) for Long Beach Rescue Mission!

Our school is following the advice of Pope Francis. In a message to young men and women around the world he said that by helping those who are suffering, you can find “…a strength that can change the world. It is a revolution that can overturn the powerful forces at work in our world. It is the ‘revolution’ of service,

St. Barnabas Volunteers

Across Long Beach volunteers pitched in on Martin Luther King Day, a ‘A day on, not a day off’, volunteering for a score of projects, including several in the Bixby Knolls area.

St. Barnabas students participated in painting a mural featuring the Statue of Liberty on a the side of a law office on Atlantic. St. Barnabas 7th graders Julia Gisel, Remy Hutton, Lucky Pascarella, Brianna Montano and Sofia Lira as well as a number of other students chipped in and their efforts were noticed by the Long Beach Post, read their story and see more photos here.

Seussical the Musical, Jr.

Our play and Spring Event will be on April 24 & 25 at St. Joseph High School. We are proud to present Seussical the Musical, Jr. as this year’s play.

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza. The Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
