Stories of Faith, Hope, and Meaning

Parishioners share their journeys

We are a diverse and inclusive community at Saint James. We come from all walks of life, from different faith traditions, and from vastly different cultures around the world.
As Christ meets us at whatever point in our journey we find ourselves, we celebrate and share our answers to prayer and what the community of faith at Saint James has meant to each of us.
