Choral Eucharist on the Feast of Barnabas the Apostle will be sung by the Cathedral Choir.

Though not named among the twelve apostles of the evangelists, Barnabas emerges in the Acts of the Apostles as one of the most significant of their number. He sold his estate and gave the proceeds to the Church, since all things were to be held in common, and clearly became a leader. He is described as a Levite from Cyprus so, like his friend Paul, was from the Greek world rather than that of Palestine, and he introduced Paul to the leaders of the Church in Jerusalem. He was sent to Antioch apparently to guide the Christians there in their relations with non-Jewish converts, promoting the concept of all being one in Christ. He travelled with Paul until he and Paul had a major argument and Barnabas went own his own with Mark to Cyprus. He is known as the Son of Encouragement. Christian tradition is that he was martyred on Cyprus in the
year 61.
