Holy Apostle Barnabas Mission Goes Outside!

July 26, 2020

Holy Apostle Barnabas Mission, Canada's most western parish, has a rather small chapel, so how are to 'spread out'? Well, go outside, of course! Our Heavenly Father gave us beautiful weather this past Sunday so were able to serve the Divine Liturgy in His great outdoors.

How awesome it was to worship Him while looking up at the sun shining down through the leaves of the trees. For a time, a hummingbird settled on a branch behind the altar and observed God's people giving thanks to the Creator for His great glory.

It was also a good way to commemorate Saint Yacob Netsvetov, Enlightener of the Alaskan People, who spent much of his time in the forests of Alaska and the Yukon bringing the Gospel to the peoples of that area.

Lord willing, Holy Apostle Barnabas Mission will spend as many Sundays as possible using His sky as the ceiling of our chapel.
