PAD’S guests on Thanksgiving Day
Each year the St. James hosts a breakfast/ brunch for the PAD’S guests on Thanksgiving Day. This event is set up to not only to provide a meal, but also a “holiday” like setting in which the guests can interact with member of the St. James community. All PADS guests are invited to arrive at 7 a.m. and stay until 11 a.m. We need parishioners to donate food and supplies for this Thanksgiving event.

The greeters make all feel welcome and also facilitate the distribution of liturgy materials. Greeting Ministers are assigned to specific Mass times as fit their schedule and needs. The requirements to be a Greeting Minister are a friendly attitude and a great smile! Families, teens and adults can participate together. Being a Greeting Minister is a great way to get to know others in the parish, to feel a part of the St. James Community, and to participate more fully in the Mass.
