The fruit of the Spirit is indeed alive and well among our youth at St. James! On November 7, 25 students used their day off from school to participate in a service opportunity in the Church Hall. Charged with baking brownies for 70 Thanksgiving baskets to be distributed via the Mustard Seed Outreach Program, the students rolled up their sleeves and got right to work.
Under the guidance of parent volunteers Maureen Phillips and Patrice Morris and student volunteers Keeley Race and Samantha Morris, 36 dozen brownies were ready for the ovens in less than 90 minutes! As the aromas of the treats baking filled the kitchen, the students enjoyed watching the movie, “Finding Buck McHenry” on the big screen.
In addition to the service, students and parents made monetary donations to cover the expense of baking ingredients. Thank you to all who participated. Keep your eye out for information related to our next Faith Formation event on December 12, which is a half-day of school.
