WE ARE THE HANDS OF CHRIST - Service is essential to our school. Through the work of our teachers, staff, and Community Involvement Committee, we engage our students with authentic service-learning experiences. At St. Barnabas, service isn’t just one day but a way of life.
Special Olympics, Maple Morgan Park Food Pantry, Pat Mac’s Pack & St. Baldrick’s, Get Behind the Vest, Amy Krouse Rosenthal Foundation, and Breast Cancer Awareness are just a few of the organizations we connect with throughout the year. Cards for local service members and supporting parish members in need are a natural part of our community.
SERVICE DAY - The best way to learn our Root Beliefs is to live them. Each spring, at our All School Service Day, over 600 students, staff, and parent volunteers gather for a day of helping others with our hands and hearts. The day includes direct service at over a dozen sites in Chicagoland with a hands-on approach to supporting those in need.
