Throughout his earthly ministry, Jesus called his followers to lives of service, compassion, and justice. As Jesus’ disciples in the 21st century, we too are called to serve others, especially those who are homeless, hungry, and poor. Through St. James’ Mission and Service programs, parishioners young and old provide support and comfort to people in need in New York City and in other parts of the world. In so doing, we are transformed into brothers and sisters in Christ, and come to know ourselves and others as beloved children of God.
