Strengths

A dynamic multicultural predominately African American parish located in West Philadelphia. St. George St. Barnabas is the diocese's only urban congregation to move from mission to parish status.  "We've come this far by faith, leading on the Lord!" is the proclamation hymn of the church.  Our excellent music ministry includes classical anthems, traditional gospel and contemporary gospel music.

Challenges

Increased stewardship and greater emphasis on ministering to our youth.
