The Women of St. James's meet on Tuesdays from October to May.
All members of the parish and their guests are welcome to be a part of the Women of St. James's.
This is the only group of Episcopal women in Connecticut that has been meeting every Tuesday (Oct-May) for lunch for over one hundred years. We come together for fellowship and stimulating programs with outside speakers from the arts, government, community, religious and nonprofit groups, health, hobbies, and entertainment. We also offer worship before the meetings for those who can come earlier. Men are also welcome.
The Women of St. James's sponsor and manage several parish-wide events including rummage sales to support parish and outreach programs.
Speakers have included:
- The Right Reverend Ian Douglas, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut
- Dr. Richard Freund, Professor of Archaelogy, University of Hartford
- The Rev. Dr. Borden Painter, Former President of Trinity College
as well as myriad artists, scholars, photographers, museum administrators and curators, public leaders, and more.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Women of St. James's has canceled their 2020-2021 program year in an effort to keep its members and guests safe. The 2020 fall rummage sale has also been canceled. It is hoped that they will be able to offer the spring rummage sale along with a late spring program. Please check back for upcoming details. Curious about what they offer? See below for a glimpse of their 2019-2020 program year.
