News and Events

 

Dress a Girl

St. Barbara’s Missionary Spirit Team would like to invite you to our next service opportunity on Saturday, October 20. We are hosting a sewing event called Dress a Girl Around the World where we will make simple dresses for girls in need. The Dress a Girl Around the World organization works with missions in over 70 countries, including the US, to help provide new dresses for girls that may not own a dress of their own. These girls may be abused or disregarded, but a new dress shows people they are looked after by people who care. We have done this the past several years and it has always been an incredible experience to see the spirit and enthusiasm of the people of St. Barbara and our community as we come together to participate in this project. Volunteers of all skill levels can help. We need task-oriented people who can cut, iron and sew. We need creative people to help inspire imaginative color schemes and decorations for the dresses. We need experienced sewers (and their machines) who would like to work as "coaches" to help the less experienced sewers among us. Please join us on Saturday, October 20 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm in the Parish Center Gym. Come for a few hours or stay for the entire day. Contact MissionarySpirit@StBarbaraBrookfield.org with any questions.

 

To Teach Who Christ Is

TTWCIWe had a very successful To Teach Who Christ Is campaign here at St. Barbara raising more than $332,995 in pledges. A pledge is made in good faith to God to support His Church. This campaign is very important for our parish as it will help us to improve accessibility to our church and parish center. We will create a more accessible, safe and professional environment in our parish office. We will also grow our building fund “First Fruits” for needed improvements in the future. To make it easier for families to keep up with their pledge payments, we will designate the 1st Sunday of each month as PLEDGE PAYMENT SUNDAY for the To Teach Who Christ Is campaign. Please bring your payment envelope to Mass, put your name on it, and place it in the 2nd collection. Of course, if you prefer to mail-in your payment you may continue to do so. Additional envelopes will be available in the church pews for your convenience. If you have questions about your pledge or wish to contribute please contact the TTWCI office at 312 532 8500 or you can go to http://www.toteachwhochristis.org. Thank you!



St. Barbara's Rosary Makers

rosaryThe Rosary Makers at St. Barbara's was founded in January 2001. Since then we have made over 32,400 rosaries for the missions mostly in Central and South America. Irene, Therese, Estelle, Marge, Stacy, Carol, Rose, Elma, and Jenny have made 2,552 rosaries since January 2017. We meet one Tuesday morning a month to hand over the rosaries that were made the previous month, and then take more supplies for the next month. Finished corded rosaries are mailed to our contact lady in Florida, and the missionaries come to her for the finished rosaries. We are fully funded by CCW. New Rosary Makers are always welcome. Call the rectory.
