st james the less

One of the local inner city Episcopal parishes, not very far from our home, ran an outstanding classical Christian school. With a cirriculum based upon the trivium and good programs in art, music, and Latin--all interwoven with a daily pattern of Anglican liturgy--the school provided a needed educational and spiritual opportunity for inner-city children.

But the school of St. James the Less is closing, a casualty of litigation between the parish and the diocese due, in large part, to the parish's traditionalism and the heretical bishop Bennison's insistence on making an example of such parishes. At least that's the way it looks from here in light of the bishop's track record.

We had hoped to send Claire to St James once she was old enough. I guess we'll now be looking into other options.
