  • To assimilate them into the life of the Church
  • To nurture them toward Christian maturity

What's Happening At-A-Glance:

Invite friends for a fun evening with members of St. Marks Lutheran and St. James Episcopal Churches. A stuffed chicken dinner will be served.  Please bring desserts you would like to share.

December 15 and 16, 2018: St James Episcopal Church is pleased to announce the return of Fisherman's Follies, a local Christian theater troupe, who will give two performances of DOVE TALE at 7pm Saturday, Dec. 15th and 2pm Sunday, Dec. 16th, 2018. DOVE TALE is a humorous and moving re-telling of the story of the events leading up to the birth of Jesus, and a delightful way to prepare the whole family for Christmas celebrations. There is no charge for admission, but since this is a benefit, we will be taking up a collection at intermission and all proceeds will go to benefit the 4th year of CityCamp Woonsocket. We hope you will join us and help spread the word about this Christmas event that also benefits our Woonsocket families. 24 Hamlet Ave. Woonsocket, RI 02895. 401-722-2222.
