Upcoming Events and Activities
The Supper Group of St. James will gather at Captain Scott's Lobster Dock, 80 Hamilton Street, New London, on this coming Thursday, July 20 at 6 PM.  All are invited to spend a fun evening with new and old friends!  Rides are available and encouraged.  Please sign up through the church office at 860-443-4989 or through Lori Sarkett (860-701-0481) by this Tuesday.  
Each Sunday we decorate the Altar with flowers, light a sanctuary candle, and consume bread and wine.  An altar flower donation is $45; sanctuary candle $5; and, communion wine or communion wafers, $10.  You may donate as a memorial honoring someone deceased, or as a thank-offering to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special event in your life.  Contact the parish office or an altar guild member for more information. 
Save the dates:
Our next "single service Sunday" will be on August 13, with a single 9 AM Rite 1 service followed by a potluck brunch on that day.  This bringing together of the parishioners who usually attend one of our three services went very well on July 16, so please join us for our next "coming together" on August 13!
The Parish Picnic at Waterford Beach Park will take place on Sunday, September 10, with Holy Eucharist at noon, followed by a picnic lunch.
Acolyte training - Sunday, September 17 at 9 AM in the Church.  All current acolytes and those interested in this ministry are encouraged to attend this training.
