Opportunities to  serve

A Message
the Dean


Cathedral Family:


   As we approach our Annual Meeting and our Commissioning Sunday, on January 30th, I am asking that you step up your engagement with SJC by serving in some capacity or by actively joining in an ongoing ministry.


    As we move from the uncertainty of the past to a sustainable, thriving future all of us are needed to do our part in making SJC what we are called to be.


   This is the year…no matter who you are, no matter what your activity level has been, now is the time for each of us to step up and claim the ministry God is calling us to. If you are willing to serve, please contact our Sr. Warden, Stan Boone, or me, as soon as possible. And please don't forget to turn in your pledge to SJC for 2022!


   In gratitude and faith,


   Dean Sam+

Lectors and acolytes

Are you interested in being an active part of Eucharist services?


Take the first steps by planning to attend our Lector and Acolyte training sessions. These trainings will help both you and the presiding clergy feel comfortable in the service you are providing. Feel free to attend one or both sessions, they will both be different! Whether you have been a previous active participant or are want to come and learn,

these trainings are for all.


Lector Training: Saturday, January 22, 2022 9-10:30 a.m.


Acolyte Training: Saturday, January 29, 2022 9-10:30 a.m.

Food bank

   If anyone has any free time on Tuesdays between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. we could always use your help with tasks around the food pantry such as housekeeping and restocking. For more information please contact us at foodbank@stjamesfresno.org or call us at (559) 439-5011 ext. 303

Ushers and greeters


   With continued in-person services, we are in need of Sunday ushers and greeters who can commit to regularly perform this duty. Ushers at St. James provide a ministry of hospitality and assistance to all worshippers, giving extra attention and help to visitors or those with special needs. Hospitality is paramount in our Christian faith, where to welcome strangers and regulars alike is akin to welcoming Jesus himself into our midst. If you are interested, please sign up below.




   Can You Help Host Coffee Hour? 

   While dropping off goodies you have on hand is appreciated, we would prefer if you would sign up to host rather than drop single items off as many of the hosts like to coordinate a special presentation of items, rather than present a pot luck of sorts. 

   Interested in signing up to bring goodies? 

There is now a calendar for the year of coffee hour dates online.

    Thank you!
