“You may wonder about outreach at St. James in these unusual times. Most of us in the parish are at a time in life when we should be careful having contact with others because of the pandemic, so hands-on outreach has been difficult to pursue this spring. However, we are a parish with resources, and outreach over these past few months has primarily taken the form of monetary contributions to individuals and organizations in need. We’ve contributed to the Maryland Food Bank; early in the pandemic we contributed $1,300 to purchase much needed masks for healthcare workers at Hopkins; we’ve helped a local family in need of food; and we helped a college student in the city buy groceries. These are just a few ways our monetary resources have been put to work and we continue to look for ways to help those in deep need.” Joe Cochran+ July 10, 2021
