Please welcome Father Barnabas Duniya to Our Lady of the Lake Parish and Our Lady of the Desert Mission. Father Barnabas was ordained on July 6, 1996 for the Kaduna Archdiocese in Nigeria. In 2000, he became a priest of the newly created and erected Diocese of Zaria in Nigeria. He has served in several capacities, including Cathedral Administrator, Director of Priestly Vocations and Director of Liturgy for his diocese, and most recently as Pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Zaria.
I am grateful to welcome Father Barnabas here in Lake Havasu City. He brings a wealth of priestly experience to us.
