The St. James Youth Group activities always include an opportunity for 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 Dear God stories. If only we all could listen to this so that we could become real friends who know how to really listen. It is a life-long art to develop but Xadriel is on his way.
