St. Barnabas, Fort Worth
St. Barnabas group
St. Barnabas Church in northeast Fort Worth has turned the
corner in their growth toward attaining self-supporting, full parish
status, with an annual income of over $225,000 and an average
Sunday attendance of 115 people. On the first Sunday in Lent,
four new members were confirmed by the Bishop, two others
were received, and three more made reaffirmations of their vows.
There were 134 people in attendance, including a large number
of young adults and children. Fr. Andrew Petta is the vicar,
assisted by Fr. Greg McBrayer, who is also a full-time chaplain
with American Airlines. Pray for their continued growth in 2018.
