BEING DISCIPLES: Join us as we read and discuss the brief (but rich) book Being Disciples by Rowan Williams, who served as the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury from 2002 to 2012, and is now Master of Magdalene College at the University of Cambridge, England. This fresh and inspiring look at the meaning of discipleship covers the essentials of the Christian life, including: faith, hope and love; forgiveness; holiness; social action; life in the Spirit. Written for the general reader by one of our greatest living theologians, this book will help us to see more clearly, love more dearly and follow more nearly the way of Jesus Christ. Starting June 25th at 11:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room. Reserve your copy of the book now with Fr. Ken or Dcn. Vicky. 

St James Fest: Sunday, July 23rd! Food, Music, Tours, Children’s Activities. Mark your calendars - ‘cuz you don’t want to miss it!
