Last year at this time, St. James was gearing up to celebrate and support "ONE THOUSAND DAYS of LOVE," an Episcopal Relief and Development campaign to help children in their first 1000 days of life.
The children of our parish were so excited...they sold hearts, collected change to make a change and then Covid 19 struck before the projects could be completed. Therefore with that in mind, we are designating 'ONE THOUSAND DAYS of LOVE" as our Lenten Outreach again this year.
Many of you will receive a "mite box" to collect your change for the next 40 days in the Lenten Packets mailed to your home this week. Fill your box with all the un-circulated change we continue to hear about throughout Covid. You can also mark your Outreach offerings " 1000 Days" during Lent. Let us see the need in the world and try to meet it!
As our Bishop Michael Curry reflected on this initiative: " Love allows us to bridge great distances so that children an ocean away are as precious to us as the little ones living right down the block."
