Mr. Parker

We are a Catholic School dedicated to teaching children Faith and academics in the greater Birmingham area. We believe in the education of the whole student and to their recognition of God’s gifts within each of them. We work to build students’ character based on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and Jesus command to love one another. We are a mission of the Catholic Church giving families an opportunity to be a part of spreading Christ’s message. The students at St. Barnabas will know they are loved and will be taught they can succeed.
