Open EACH FRIDAY IN LENT, the St. James Episcopal Church Workers (ECW) invites you to Bishops Hall, at the corner of Florida and N. Fourth Street for Gumbo 2019!

As they’ve done each Lent for over 60 years, volunteers at St. James will serve fabulous Gumbo lunches of either shrimp, or chicken and sausage gumbo, along with Sensation Salad, bread and a tasty dessert, between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. each Friday. Dine-in customers enjoy water, tea or coffee included with their meal.

Drive-thru pickup of boxed lunches is also available. Ala carte items are great for heat-and-eat meals at home or the office: pints and quarts of gumbo, rice, cole slaw, dessert servings and bread by the loaf are offered. Just phone in your pick-up order to 225-387-5141 on Friday mornings between 8 and 10, and it can be delivered right to your car on our Fourth Street pick-up lane.

St. James’ Friday Lenten Gumbo lunches are the sole fundraiser for the Episcopal Church Workers’ outreach projects. The St. James ECW has offered assistance to numerous local groups and agencies, as well as making significant contributions to hurricane relief as well as foreign mission work involving parishioners and of local interest.

St. James Artists Guild

 

Hearty Breakfast Sign-up is here.

 

The St. James Artists Guild is open to all practicing artists in the St. James family. Twice a year, month-long exhibitions of works are held in the Parish Hall parlor (generally, in July and November) and professional works are displayed in a stunning arrangement displaying the artistic talents of the parish. Some pieces are offered for sale at the exhibitions, but "NFS" pieces are also exhibited. Both exhibitions have developed sustained followings through their eight-year runs. Contact Nancy Jo Poirrier for more information about the Guild.

One Stop Artists Guild is comprised of art students taught at the One Stop Homeless Services Center, a facility of the Capital Area Alliance for the Homeless, by St. James parishioners Elizabeth Whitley and Warren Green. Elizabeth and Warren have helped direct the efforts of several students with profound talent who create insightful and enjoyable works of art.

Patron Information:

St. James Episcopal Church in Baton Rouge will present an exhibition of art created by members of the St. James Artists Guild, in the Parish Hall parlor. The work of these professional artists will be on exhibit throughout the month.
