The Episcopal Parish of Mason County

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church is a growing and vibrant Mission (Diocese of Springfield, IL) in beautiful Havana, Illinois. This Mission exists to provide those unchurched and disaffected Christians a place to reconnect with Jesus Christ, his Church, as well as his Word and his Sacraments. Come and see what the Lord is doing, Taste and see that the Lord is good, and come be a part of our community!

We welcome you . . .

. . . to walk with us, worship with us, work with us, and otherwise share our life.

We are Christians

We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord. We are baptized into his death and resurrection. We strive to follow him in all things.

We are Catholics

Our faith and practice are grounded in the tradition of the Church–that is, what has been handed on to us– going back to Jesus and the apostles.
(No, we’re not Roman Catholics, though we have much in common with our friends in that tradition.)

We are Anglicans

Our spiritual ‘DNA’ comes from the Church of England, and we are part of the family of 38 churches, all over the world, in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

We are Episcopalians

The Episcopal Church, established in 1789, is the American expression of Anglican Christianity. We are one of 110 dioceses that mutually support one another in a common doctrine, discipline, and worship.
