As in past years, St. James is supporting three charities during Lent: Choices Youth Shelter in Orangeville, The Bridge Prison Ministry and the Elizabeth Fry Society of Halton-Peel. Please visit the websites of these organizations to learn about their missions.
They have all expressed gratitude for our support in the past and especially for our desire to help them in this difficult year. Because of the COVID pandemic, we will be not be having our usual Lenten Tree and shopping for items to put into gift bags. If you would like to donate to these charities, send a cheque or e-transfer marked ‘Community Outreach’ to St. James.
Money received will be divided equally and sent by our treasurer, Todd, to the three separate charities.
