The 96th St. James May Breakfast—Saturday, May 6th @ 7:30 AM to 11:30 am.

St. James needs you! Our May Breakfast is fast approaching on May 6th and we need your help. Each year we offer baked goods, candy, craft items, and plants for sale. Your contributions help tremendously so we are asking for them again. There are still opportunities to help with the Breakfast so please speak with Shirley if you are interested in doing so (before she gets to you!). Of prime importance please plan to come to eat between 7:30 and 11:30 AM. Spread the word to family and friends and see if we can top last year’s figures. For a new twist and added incentive there will be drawings for door prizes throughout the morning.

Woonsocket Chapter #3, Order of the Eastern Star is holding a Ham and Bean Supper on Friday, April 28th at 6 P. M. in the parish hall to raise money for the charities it supports. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children and can be obtained from Shirley Ayers. Wrapped soap and new socks to be given to the St. James Food Bank and the Coat of Many Colors can be traded for door prize tickets. See/call (762-4535) Shirley for more details.

Bishop Knisely will be making an official visitation to St. James on Sunday, May 28th.  One of the things that bishops during parish visitations is perform confirmations, receive people into the communion of the Episcopal church, and pray for those who want to make a formal renewal of their baptismal declaration of faith in Christ.
