Parish Administrator

Phone: (530) 676-5348

 Barbara has been attending Faith Episcopal Church since 1992. She was the first office manager at Faith Church 25 years ago.
 When Barbara is not in the office you might find her with Kali her dog, or gardening or hiding behind her camera taking pictures of flowers and bugs. Her favorite camera moment was when a friend ask her to take her son’s senior portraits. She responded that she didn’t have that talent and her friend’s response was, “yes you do, just pretend he is a flower!”
