The EPISCOPAL CHURCH of ST. JAMES the LESS

Outreach Committee

Parishioners and our Senior Youth Group distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of NYC. During the Holidays we sell Gift Cards that benefit Midnight Run.

Midnight Run

Works with families to help society’s most vulnerable children to become educationally proficient, economically productive and socially responsible members of their communities.  It has been a long time tradition at St James the Less to adopt cottages at The Children’s Village during the holiday season. Parishioners provide each boy with a gift from their wish list.

Recently, we have given each boy a tin of home baked cookies , baked by parishioners and packed by our youth. Periodically parishioners tutor, read and spend time with the boys. Last year our Senior Youth Group hosted a bowling party for the boys, ages 11-14.

Adult Forums

After the 10:00 a.m. service, adults and children gather in the Parish Hall for a time of refreshment and fellowship.

At approximately 11:20 a.m., the bell rings indicating that the church school classes are about to begin. Children and teachers gather in their classrooms until 12:00 p.m. to explore the Bible and their faith.

Adults are invited to participate in a planned educational forum. We have been honored to have noted biblical scholars, seminary professors, and community outreach leaders speak at our forums. A schedule of the complete forums will be displayed on our calendar.
