September 26, 2021

The church office is will be closed on Thursday, September 30, 2021 in recognition of Truth and Reconciliation Day. May we learn from the past and seek to build better relationships with our first nations neighbours as treaty people living in Mi’kma’ki , the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People.

Your Social Justice Committee hopes you will join us in marking Sept. 30th, Orange Shirt Day. More than ever this year, we need to acknowledge that every child matters! On Thursday this week, please wear orange and encourage others to do the same. Let us honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and learn more about the history of those institutions.

Next Sunday, October 4th we will celebrate Holy Communion at St. James. If you would like elements to celebrate via the online service please contact Patsy in the church office.

Thanksgiving is coming up and the worship committee are looking for help in decorating the windows as we have in other years. If you are interested please contact the church office or sign up after church.

How can you help support the life and work at St. James? You can mail a donation to St. James United Church, P. O. Box 1178, 197 Main Street, Antigonish NS B2G 2L6, drop it off in the mail slot, click on the “Donate” button on the website, or you can give monthly via PAR.
