Faith. Fellowship. Service.
“We are called by God to see Christ in all persons, grow in faith and live in joyful fellowship with one another.”

Faith & Poetry
“We are poets, and people of prayer.” Pier Giorgio Di Cicco
Our Faith & Poetry program at St Barnabas meets on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. with a simple supper of soup and bread in the lounge. At 7:00 pm there is an introduction to the session and a reading of the poem. Each session ends at 8:00 pm. We share soup and conversation and then listen to a poem, which attendees reflect upon and discuss in a relaxed and informal setting. Each session is stand-alone, so if you miss one you can come to the next session. Copies of the poem and other materials will be provided for each session.
Details of all poems are shown below. For further details and to confirm your attendance at one or more of the sessions, please contact the office at 2800 Duncan Road, Wilmington DE 19808, email or telephone (302) 994 6607.
