Dr. Faustino Bernadett is highlighting St. Barnabas Catholic Church in Long Beach for this Nonprofit Spotlight.
The Church runs many ministries some of which include a baseball league for youth, a boy scouts pack, CANA marriage renewal movement, confirmation for youth, a girl scout troop and a healthcare committee.
In addition to the Church, St. Barnabas runs a small Roman Catholic school serving Long Beach and Signal Hill.
St. Barnabas Parish School’s mission is simple: To provide a meaningful Catholic education and promote academic excellence for each student. We create a nurturing and respectful environment with the highest level of integrity in order to enrich our students’ spiritual and social development.
St. Barnabas was founded by the Sisters of the Holy Cross in 1946 and opened with 290 pupils enrolled in grades one to eight. In 1977, a kindergarten was opened. When the Sisters of the Holy Cross withdrew in 1994, the first lay principal was appointed to continue the school’s mission. A day care center was opened in the fall of 1994 in the former convent. In 2013 we opened our first Transitional Kindergarten class with 24 students who are now part of the St. Barnabas family.
St. Barnabas is a proud part of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles School System.
Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett are glad to support St. Barnabas because of their commitment to educating youth through a meaningful Catholic education.
