Fishing with St. James

May 20, 2018

Stewardship forms are in the church today on the Feast of Pentecost to encourage everyone to discern how the Holy Spirit is inviting them to greater participation and generosity in our parish and community. As disciples of Christ, we are called to share the gifts God has given us to benefit others. Our “need to give” is the first priority and then we are challenged to look for needs within the community where we can offer our gifts and talents. Everyone is invited to make a...  continue reading

SCRIP Gift Card Program

To stream-line the sales process, the SCRIP program will be changing in January 2018.

• Rather than selling gift cards in the gathering space after Mass, SCRIP will now be available to purchase by completing a paper order form and placing it (along with your payment) in the collection plate during Mass or by taking it to the church office.
• Orders will be due by the 15th of each month, and gift cards will be available to pick up from the church office on or after the 22nd of each month.
• Blank order forms can be picked up in the Gathering Space, on a table outside the office.

You can use SCRIP gift cards for gift giving or for your usual day-to-day expenses such as groceries or gas. Each time you purchase SCRIP gift cards, a percentage of your purchase goes directly to St. James. Thank you for your support!!!
