The St. Barbara Cursillo Community is comprised of parishioners who have made the Cursillo weekend and wish to remain active in the diocesan Cursillo movement. Cursillo is a “short course in Catholic Christian Living” and begins with a 3 day weekend retreat. Those who attend and complete the weekend are called “Cursillistas” and become members of the Cursillo community, embarking on their “Fourth Day” – the rest of their lives, to live out their faith in the Cursillo method. The movement promotes piety, study and action as the three tenements to maintain living the Cursillo method and is heavily rooted in friendship, community and prayer groups.
There are more than 200 Cursillo members at St. Barbara. We would love you to take part in this special program. For more information on Cursillo please see contact us.

As with any parish the maintenance and upkeep of the St. Barbara campus can be a daunting task. The parish has been very fortunate to have such wonderful volunteers to keep the grounds beautiful. Grounds and Maintenance teams are always looking for help.
With the completion of the Sterling Event Center, St. Barbara Church and its campus will be an extremely welcoming place for all to enjoy. The campus requires much maintenance and attention to keep it as one of the shining jewels within the Covington Diocese. The Spare Time Parishioner Club has been established to allow individuals to use their unique talents and skills. The members of this group (open to all parishioners - men and women) meet after 10:00 mass on Fridays for an hour or so of fellowship and campus maintenance followed by a group lunch at church.
All talents and skills are welcomed. Please contact us to see how you can lend a hand.

Holy Name Society
Jim Wendelin - (859) 757-7285
The Holy Name Society enhances spiritual enrichment while building a social community of men of the parish and other men throughout the Diocese. They support meaningful liturgy for the parish by providing the altar bread and wine for consecration during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. They financially assist the parish in meeting unbudgeted expenses, especially youth, fellowship and religious programs. They provide assistance to the poor, especially parish members and encourage and promote the stewardship of time, talent and treasure of our members.
This ministry hosts many special events to keep the fellowship of the parish active. The annual Turkey Shoot, Keeneland Trip, Lenten Fish Frys, Spring Golf Outing, assistance with the annual Parish Picnic, Spring and Fall campus cleanup and Cursillo sponsorships are just a few ways this ministry lends their service and support.
We want to grow our society by attracting new members-especially newer parish members just joining the church. If you are interested in joining please contact us for further information.
