June 2, 2012 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us as we bless our two community garden locations for a fruitful and productive growing season! The brief rite of blessing will be an ecumenical event, attended by Father Jim Galluzzo and other friends of St. James. Carpooling is encouraged; please sign up on the Bulletin Board or call the church office to arrange. Maps to both locations are also available at the church. Please come to one or both garden locations for this festive event to kick off the garden season!
