The women of St. James have knitted or crocheted hundreds of prayer shawls that have been given and sent to people who we encounter. Made in prayer and blessed by God, these shawls have been wrapped around those who are ill, those who are hurting, those for whom we have prayed.
If you would like to create a prayer shawl or know of someone who needs one, please contact the church office.
St. James collects teddy bears and other stuffed animals to give to the Erie Police, who give them to young children who have been involved in accidents or who have witnessed violence in their families or neighborhoods.
Our prayers go with these animals, that the child who receives them may be surrounded by God’s gracious acts of comfort and healing.
St. James contributes food items to Fairview’s food pantry.
