On July 3rd, our interim rector, the Rev. Dr. Carol Jablonski, issued a new pastoral letter updating the status of the ongoing closure at St. James and announcing upcoming changes in the security procedures on the church campus. Additionally, her letter provides details about the start of a few small-group outdoor gatherings—the only kind we can have at the moment. All parishioners are urged to read Rev. Carol's letter, which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking on the following link. Pastoral letter
According to Judi Frame, the St. James face mask project has produced a grand total of 673 masks for the Rescue Mission, IAM, and The Storehouse. The seamstresses are taking a well-earned break right now, but may resume in the fall if additional masks are needed. Congratulations to everyone involved!
