Happy Easter!  Christ is risen!  Come worship with us.

A group from St. James attended the “Synod” (which we know as “Diocesan Convention”) of the Diocese of Cuba on March 1-3.   The Winecoffs, Burges, and Watsons made the trip to represent our parish at the event and also to be present for the ordination of four young men to the Deaconate. One of the ordinands was Noel Josue Rodriguez Santos, a young man the visitors had met on two previous trips to our companion churches.
