Friday was quite amazing. We were blessed with so many volunteers—some visiting from afar! Thank you to all of them! Our Blessed Virgin Mother was on the minds of many because it was The Feast of the Annunciation, a day for celebration. It was also a day of prayer to Mary. Around the world, includingContinue reading “March 25, 2022-Thanks and Prayer”
On the eve of the Feast of St. Joseph, we welcomed parishioners and members of the community to our fry. Families were able to hang out both inside and out. Some ate outside-picnic style. A few convertibles even had the tops down! It was a great night for community, fellowship, and positivity. May peace comeContinue reading “March 18, 2022-Great Weather, Great Fellowship”

What an energized start! After days of prepping and a short prayer by Father Scalia-the fry began. Logistically-there were a few kinks but at this point our volunteers are expert adapters. Both in-person and drive-thru stations were non-stop. At the end of the night, about 1200 meals were served.
Standing over hot oil frying hushpuppies infuses the clothes with a very special smell. Washing and airing only goes so far. After the last fry of the Lenten season, the clothes are washed, aired, and stored in the garage. Time to bring them in! We hope to see you tonight.
As we begin a time of Lenten reflection and look towards renewal, consider coming to St. James for fellowship, community, and yes–fish…delicious baked or fried. We will be preparing meals every Friday. We look forward to seeing you!
The weather was beautiful and over 1000 meals were served. Thank you for being part of our community. Please visit in 2022! Happy Easter!
The weather will be wonderful. There will be fish, fries, hush puppies, slaw and more… Thanks for being part of our community.
