St Barnabas

Sentence   (St Barnabas' Day should be on 11 June. As it coincides with Pentecost 2, and either can be celebrated. If Pentecost 2 is celebrated on this day, then St Barnabas’ Day is transferred to the following day.)
This Jesus God raised up, and of that all of us are witnesses. (Acts 2:32)
Collect   Grant, O God, that we may follow the example of your faithful servant Barnabas, who, seeking not his own renown but the well-being of your Church, gave generously of his life and substance for the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
