Special Needs Ministry

We are excited to announce the start of a new ministry here at St. Barnabas designed to help young, and young at heart, adults with disabilities develop and reinforce their connection with God and the Catholic faith. It is an opportunity for spiritual growth through group activities, social interaction, home-based lessons, discussion, and prayer. 

Families in the Nordonia Hills area with a son or daughter, age 18 or older, with any type of disability be it physical, developmental, mental or cognitive are welcome to attend.  If you have a relative, friend, neighbor or co-worker who is the caregiver for an adult with special needs please reach out and invite them to join us.  

You do not need to be Catholic and there is no fee to participate.  If you are interested in attending and learning more about our plans, please RSVP to Questions? Contact Mary Henefeld ( or Anne Illig (330-283-5528).
