4th Friday Suppers

St. James’ Episcopal Church has participated in free community suppers since the early 1990s. St. James’ takes the 4th Friday of the month because that is when the need seems to be the greatest – near the end of the month. As a result of this schedule, we don’t serve suppers in November or December because they usually fall near the holidays and many of our parishioners are away. We have offered suppers for so long that it is one of our biggest outreach ministries.

People of St. James’

The Rev. Jane+ White-Hassler – Priest in Charge
The Rev. Jared Talbot – Deacon
Cassandra Wright – Senior Warden
Faith Dinne – Junior Warden
John Gregory – Treasurer

Members of the Vestry:
