Jay Barnwell, Director of Stewardship for Our Lady of the Pines Parish, dies at age 74

COLORADO SPRINGS. Jay Barnwell, who served as Director of Stewardship for Our Lady of the Pines Parish in the Black Forest section of Colorado Springs, died Dec. 21, 2022. Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Jan. 13 at Our Lady of the Pines.

Barnwell was born July 13, 1948 in Denver, one of 11 children born to Joan and Marion Barnwell. He graduated from Machebeuf High School in 1966 and attended the University of Colorado while pursuing a career as an airline pilot. He worked as an instructor at Arapahoe Airport and as a traffic reporter for a radio station.

He married his wife Nancy in 1970, and they had two sons, Marc and Michael. In 1971, Barnwell was hired by Flying Tigers as an instructor, and when that company merged with FedEx, he was named chief pilot. 

The Barnwells later relocated to Colorado Springs, where Jay worked as a tow pilot for the U.S. Air Force Academy and became a trustee for the Falcon Foundation. He also became a Knight of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre.

In 2013, Barnwell retired and began volunteering at Our Lady of the Pines as stewardship director as well as sacristan, acolyte, extraordinary minister of holy communion and other roles. 
He is survived by his wife Nancy, sons Marc (Amanda) and Michael (Jennifer), six grandchildren, and siblings Betty, Rosemary, Bob, Janie, Mary Lu, Paul, Greg and David.

We all appreciate the scenic beauty of nature. In our diocese we are blessed with the Rocky Mountains; they are practically at our doorstep. Just a step outside, a nod to the west and the vision of the mountains brings us closer to nature and to God. The top of Pikes Peak is nestled right under heaven and, as sure as the air is crisp, many a prayer has been prayed there.

- The Eucharistic Revival in the Diocese of Colorado Springs

The Eucharist commits us to the poor. To receive in truth the Body and Blood of Christ given up for us, we must recognize Christ in the poorest, his brethren:

‘You have tasted the Blood of the Lord, yet you do not recognize your brother, . . . You dishonor this table when you do not judge worthy of sharing your food someone judged worthy to take part in this meal . . . God freed you from all your sins and invited you here, but you have not become more merciful.’ — Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 1397 (quote from St. John Chrysostom).
