Husky Hits - Oct 9 2016

As the season changes to fall, at least on the Gregorian Calendar if not in the meteorological experience of Los Angeles, we are reminded how the passing of time can catch up on all of us. Sunday evening is the perfect time to reflect on the past week and scroll down to see the exciting events ahead! 

Here are some galleries showing what the first week of fall brought to St. James':

- From the Rev. Aidan Koh, Chaplain


At our school chapel services on Wednesday, October 12 (4th–6th), and Thursday, October 13 (K–3rd), we will include the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Religion teachers are instructing the children this week on how to receive the bread and wine.

The children will have five choices when the Eucharist is offered:
  • Eat the bread and drink the wine.
  • Take the bread, dip it into the wine, and eat it.
  • Eat the bread but have no wine.
  • Take neither bread nor wine but ask for a blessing.
  • Take neither bread nor wine and not request a blessing. (Students preferring this option should remain seated in their pews.)
We hope that parents and children will discuss these choices and determine which one is preferable before the services. We usually do not require parents to provide written response or permission, but we hope that the children can express their families’ wishes at the services by raising their hands to indicate which choice they will take.

If you have any questions about these matters, please feel free to contact the Rev. Aidan Koh at 213-382-2315 ext. 250.
