Please bring your items to the hall prior to the 11a.m. service and set them up on our display tables.  

A  Heartfelt THANK YOU to all  who, in the past months, have kindly donated time, talent and money to the Steeple Fund.  Since the summer, as many are aware, work on the steeple at St. James’ has involved much more in the way of structural repair and upkeep than expected.  The Rector, Wardens and Council appreciate the support of all – from St. James’, Christ Church and the wider community – toward maintaining the integrity of this important landmark.  Donations will continue to be gratefully accepted on an ongoing basis, and please note as well that receipts will be forthcoming in due course.

Anyone wishing to have an afternoon out, enjoy a cup of tea etc. please feel free to join the knitters  between 1 & 3 p.m. on Wednesdays.  They will make you most welcome!

St. James  Parish offers  you the convenient opportunity to donate to a number of causes and community efforts. You are likely already aware that you can donate to the Primate's World Relief & Development Fund (PWRDF), the Mahone Bay & Area Food Bank, and now you can also donate to the school-lunch program at Bayview Community School, helping to provide good lunches to kids who need them. Simply make your cheque out to St. James' as you normally would, and make a note on it what it is for, if it is intended for one of these worthwhile effort.
