The preparation for St. James Confirmation candidates always includes service hours. Examples of service opportunities include Trunk or Treat at the Ronald McDonald House and the Souper Bowl of Caring for Harvesters. This year, due to the pandemic we had to rethink and adjust our service opportunities to do safe, socially distanced service. As a result, the teens are videotaping themselves reading bible stories for everyone but especially children to enjoy.  Or in the case of Charlie, a sophomore at a local high school, he chose to do a reflection on one of the Beatitudes, Blessed are the Peacemakers.  How apropos for today’s world!
