Lazarus Project Welcoming Committee

The Welcoming Committee provides an opportunity to open up Saint James doors to new parishioners.  Every new parishioner, and their family, is introduced to the parish community by a member of the committee.  The committee member helps the new parishioner navigate the new experience and allowing him/her to find their own place in the parish community.  Saint James is a very active faith community and all should feel welcome.  If you have questions about the Welcoming Committee, please see Deacon James after the Masses or send him an email to deaconjames@stjameswv.org

Mom’s Retreat

Every January, the parish hosts a Mom’s Retreat at the Priest Field Pastoral Center in Kearneysville, WV.  It is a weekend for moms to focus on their own spiritual needs and prepare themselves for a new year of family life.  The setting also allows moms to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.  It is a perfect opportunity to experience the fellowship of other women in the same state in life.  The retreat usually takes place on the first weekend of January.  For more information, please call the Parish Office at 304-725-5558 and leave a message for Melissa Munuhe.

St. Peter Docent Corps

The St. Peter Docent Corps provides information to the public about the Historic Chapel of St. Peter and the significant role it played in the history of the Harpers Ferry Historic District; evangelization by means of their ability to answer questions with courtesy and respect, their appearance and demeanor, and their availability for prayer.

Members will welcome the public and provide information about the Historic Chapel of St. Peter and the significant role it played in the history of Harpers Ferry.

There will be a half-day introductory session in the spring, and four 4-hour sessions (Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays) between the Memorial Day and Columbus Day, plus a 3-hour session during one of Harpers Ferry’s Olde Tyme Christmas weekends in early December.
