St. Patrick’s Parish in Merced, California presents the professional comedy team of Barnes & Miner, Friday, September 25, as an inaugural fundraising event hosted by Fr. John Fluetsch to establish the Our Lady of Mercy Preservation Foundation.
Bishop Armando Ochoa of the Diocese of Fresno has designated Our Lady of Mercy Church as a stationary church for the faithful of the Merced-Mariposa Vicariate in which to receive special indulgences for the Year of Mercy, December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016. Upon the Bishop’s approval, special Mass times and services will be offered at Our Lady of Mercy Church throughout the Holy Year.
Barnes & Miner
Married in 2002, Amy Barnes and Jerry Miner are Barnes & Miner. They share stages across the country performing their unique brand of hysterical tag team comedy.
They began with a theater show, “The Funnymooners,” to rave reviews in Oklahoma and then opened the new Sideshow theater in Tempe, AZ with the extended run show, “Barnes & Miner: Let the Little Things Go,” which opened to sold out crowds.
Amy and Jerry relocated from Los Angeles to the Pacific Northwest with their daughter and son because grandparents are more valuable than sunshine!
Their shows have been described as part reality, part therapy and all comedy. It’s a blend of elevated stand-up, quick-witted improvising and hilarious songs and parodies. Together they’ve made 25 national TV appearances, received prestigious comedy awards and performed at numerous International Comedy Festivals.
Join Fr. John for an evening of comedy with Barnes & Miner, Friday, September 25, St. Patrick’s Parish Hall. Happy Hour begins at 6:30 PM and tickets are $25. Visit www.olmstpatrick.org or phone 209-383-3924 for ticket sales and event details.
