As usual, the parishioners of St. James responded with lavish generosity to the needs of those in our local community. Thank you to all who contributed underwear and socks, wipes and diapers to the Undy Sunday Collection last weekend. These will be distributed in the weeks and months ahead to low-income children, families and seniors throughout the Diocese of Joliet by Catholic Charities at their various locations.

The representatives from Catholic Charities who came to St. James to pick up donations filled their two cars to the brim with the donated items. They were overjoyed with the kindness of the people of St. James and asked us to share their gratitude.
