WHO WE ARE:
We are the whole family of St. James, from the oldest to the youngest member.
WHAT WE DO:
We gather together once a week to share a common meal much like the early Christians. Agape is a Greek word meaning love feast. The origin of the love feast is Matthew 26:26 when Jesus took bread, gave thanks and gave it to his disciples…The Agape feast was celebrated daily, as part of the Eucharistic Celebration.
Everyone was invited regardless of economic or social class. Portions of food were sent to the sick and absent members. This was intended as an example of mutual Christian love. The Agape fest was separated from the Eucharist sometime in the second or third century.
WHEN & WHERE WE MEET:
We meet every Wednesday night during the school year at approximately 6:35 p.m. in the Parish Hall, following 6 p.m. Eucharist held in the Chapel.
WHAT WILL BE EXPECTED OF ME:
Adult meals cost is $5.00 and Children’s meals are $4.00. Members and ministries are asked to cook one meal a year and to be in charge of set-up and clean-up. Each person/ministry should be responsible for cleaning up after themselves, and helping the Agape Team.
