Rosaries for Guatemala 

Tuesday, April 15th 5-6pm, David Room Whether you are crafty or not we would LOVE your help to make rosaries for the 1st communion class at the Centro Educativa Anunciata in Chichicastenango, Guatemala. The past 2 years the rosary makers have graciously made rosaries for my students in Guatemala who are making their 1st Communion. THIS year I would love to see the rosaries made by OUR youth. So young or old, come enjoy some treats & help us make rosaries for students just like you! YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM!

Bagged Lunches for St. Ambrose

Date: Tuesday, April 29th
Time: 6:30pm-7:30pm
Parish Office Kitchen

Help us prepare bagged lunches to be distributed at the St. Ambrose Soup Kitchen.


It is with great excitement that we announce that the John Donnelly Memorial Garden has just received a special grant from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development through the Diocese of Syracuse! The money from this grant will be used to help  us expand our garden project that we started last year that aims to provide our pantry with fresh produce! We can’t wait to get working. Let’s hope and pray for another fruitful summer! Below are the new details!

The John Donnelly Memorial Garden
Calling all gardeners AND those who LOVE to just get dirty! I would like to proudly announce that not only is our food pantry community garden expanding onto 20 Laurel St. it will also hold the namesake of St. James beloved Farmer John. Our garden last year would not have survived the summer without the dedication and expertise of John Donnelly. He will be greatly missed by the garden crew this summer, thankfully he has passed on some of his knowledge to us! We will need more help then ever this summer with the expanded plot so PLEASE e-mail Lynette if you and/or your family would like to be a part of this GREAT project. Our 1st meeting will be held Wednesday, April 9th at 6pm in the parish office.

Our garden is planted and growing! Many thanks to our dedicated families who dug, planted and watered this past weekend to successfully start our garden at Otsiningo Park!
We will be caring for our garden all summer long, let us know if you are interested in joining the team!

Students in grades 1-5 spent the afternoon building, creaitng and racing their Lego creations at a Bricks for Kids Workshop in Owens Hall.
Working in teams they built self propelled dragsters and super spin-art!! Way to go Legomaniacs!
Keep your eyes open for more Lego workshops to come!


Many hands make light work! 

Over 18 volunteers came to honor Martin Luther King Jr. on the National Day of Service by preparing 100+ bagged lunches that were donated to the St. Ambrose Soup Kitchen. Volunteers got elbow deep in jelly and worked together to pack and prepare all the lunches in under 20 minutes! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedules to do something great for your fellow community members!
