            THANK YOU!! 

To everyone who participated in the newcomers potluck last Sunday a huge thank you.  And to all who helped make it possible - from cooks, to organizers, to set-up and take down, dish washers and everything in between. It was a very good time.


Each Sunday there will be a table in the corner of the Dundas room where people who have clothes, blankets, or household items to donate can bring them to the back table for the newcomers. 



Thank you to everyone who supported St. James through the Fundscrip gift card program last year.


The next order date is February 4th!!
