Christmas Angels Among Us Christmas Angels Among  Us   Christmas Angels will be displayed on Christmas trees located in the Narthex and  available for adoption on November 22nd and 23rd.    The St. James Christmas Angels project offers assistance to those experiencing financial difficulties. Each year, our parish Community Concerns Committee invites parishioners to adopt angels from the Christmas trees in the Narthex — then shop for Christmas gifts for an individual or family, – either child or adult.  The Parish receives names of those needing assistance from Catholic Charities and from fellow parishioners.  This year, we are receiving more names than in previous years, so please be sure to help these families by grabbing a Christmas Angel.  We need your help more than ever this year.  Read the Full Story
