WV Strong: St. James the Greater Catholic Church

Jefferson County

Today’s Better Angels are the congregants and volunteers within the St. James the Greater Catholic Church in Charles Town. In the early days of the pandemic when businesses began to shut down, a group from the church began routinely calling senior citizens in their community asking if there was anything they needed so they could remain quarantined. Groups within this special church have performed many acts of kindness, including food distribution on Mother’s Day, free milk distribution, and in working with “Our Shared Plate,” an initiative that works to provide grocery store gift cards to those in need.
