For the second year in a row, St. James is hosting a unique opportunity that will benefit the wider community of Titusville and help dispel the winter blahs. St. James After Dark will offer fourteen different enrichment classes over the course of four days—February 1-4. Each class is $10 with some of them having a small fee to cover the cost of materials. All proceeds will go to support outreach efforts.
The classes vary in length and number of days offered but all will be held in the parish hall from 6-9 PM. The offerings include Landscaping 101, Hypertufa, Tangling (advanced and beginner sessions), How to Hook a Rug, Glass Etching and many more. For a complete listing please go to our website www.stjamestitusville.org.
When we launched this program last year, there was some skepticism about how it would be received. We began with 11 course offerings and received registrations for all but one of them. By the end of the week, over 50 people had participated. The Bishop’s Committee decided to allocate the proceeds, over $500 to Hospice of Crawford County to help defray costs that are not funded by other means.
It is our hope that this year’s event will be even more well attended. Some offerings have returned from last year and others are new. There is a great pool of talent in the community and a great willingness to share those talents with others.
The Rev. Canon Martha Ishman, St. James, Titusville
