Saint James Mission Trips
Reaching Out to Others in Need
Transform Jersey Shore Area
For the past three years, volunteers from Saint James have traveled northwest to the borough of Jersey Shore, in Lycoming County. Once an industrial boom-town, the area has endured economic difficulties made worse by massive industrial accidents and the Agnes Flood in 1972.
Transform Jersey Shore Area (TJSA) is a home-town mission trip created by Trinity Episcopal Church in Jersey Shore, PA. It is dedicated to helping their neighbors repair and renew their homes — One community, one neighborhood, one life at a time. This outreach program is also sponsored by an ecumenical body of believers from area churches and organizations whose goal is to show and share the love of Christ by forming relationships with our neighbors in the communities.
Saint James Plays a Role in this Endeavor
For the past three years, volunteers from Saint James have traveled to Jersey Shore and contributed their time, skills, gifts and talents to neighborhoods in need.
In 2017, jobs included scraping and painting, installing insulation and siding, replacing a hot water heater and a kitchen faucet, installing two sets of steps and a deck, and repairing a shingle roof.
