The Youth of St. James’ Church in Upper Montclair presented a special night of scary ghost tales and spooky tours on Sunday evening, October 30, 2011.

Ghosts and Spirits that hide in secret corners and hallways of St. James came out to hear their stories shared with visiting tourists on the eve before Halloween.

The Youth Group collected $150 in donations which will go to the Alleluia Fund in support of diocesan outreach programs.

The Ghost Tours was the first of several events that the St. James’ Youth have planned for the upcoming year. Other events include collecting gifts for children with an incarcerated parent through the Tree of Grace in December, serving as a group at Christine’s Soup Kitchen in February, cooking and serving a pancake dinner on Shrove Tuesday, and presenting a dramatization of the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday.
