From the Rector
Hello Parishioners: a reminder that tomorrow is Jim Stratton-Crooke's funeral, at 11 am. Hope to see many of you there to celebrate the life of this incredible man. This coming Sunday, we will be honoring--and hearing from--our high school seniors, so please come out to support them. And finally, this Sunday we'll also announce the recipient of the Wally Owen Award for outstanding service to St. James. And after that, we're on to regular summer Sundays! Looking forward to seeing you all in the coming days. And in case you missed the pictures of Pentecost Sunday, the ice cream truck, and last weekend's Cabaret, click here. Looking at this will bring joy to your day--really!

Parish Field Trip to St. Thomas Fifth Avenue THIS Sunday June 16
Deacon Susie and Mother Storm are organizing a trip to St. Thomas Church in Manhattan for a performance there of an amazing play written by an Episcopal priest in our diocese, "A New York Lamentation." This play "brings to life the tragic history of slavery that existed in New York City and the Hudson Valley for more than 200 years. All the characters in the play are real historical figures, including slaves, slave owners and abolitionists." A New York Lamentation” is directed by Jeannine Otis, a musician, actress, playwright, director and author. She is also the musical director for St. Mark’s in the Bowery in Manhattan. The play will be presented at 4 p.m., Sunday, June 16th at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, 1 West 53rd Street, New York, NY. For more details, click here. If you're planning to join, please contact Dakota in the office so she can add you to the list.

Just some fruit and bagels or a plate of cookies and cheese & crackers! Sign up here.
Ask a Warden
Have a question about the church? Want to help but don't know what's needed? Ask a warden! They're here for you! You can contact Pam Heldman or Douglass Hatcher any time and they'd be happy to answer your questions.
