What's New at Saint James'
Due to concern around the COVID-19 pandemic, the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester has directed that parishes suspend worship at our churches and move to worshiping online.
Check out Father Abi's blog here.
The Rev. Abidhananthar John is now serving both St. John’s in Catherine and St. James in Watkins Glen. Please join us in welcoming Father Abi to our parish family!
