Barb began serving the Parish as the part-time Bookkeeper in 2008, after having retired as an Enrolled Actuary specializing in retirement benefits and record keeping.
According to Barb, "Simply put, I pay the bills and pay the people. I also prepare financial reports and am blessed to work with our collection counters. I especially enjoy assisting other staff members with special projects and data work."
In addition to serving in various aspects of ministry including being a Eucharistic minister and lector, Barb also enjoys volunteering, especially at the hospital and preparing meals for those in need.
While Barb loves her parish and her community, nothing is more enjoyable than her role as "Grammy." "I love spending time with family (especially as “Grammy”) and enjoy cooking, baking, reading, playing cards, building puzzles, and camping."
Barb's hope for the Parish is that we continue to reach out to others, truly being the hands and feet of Christ to those around us; May everyone feel invited, welcome, and accepted at St. Bernard Parish!
