Exploring Saint James

Understanding our faith and heritage

Copper PlaqueEverything you’ve always wanted to know about Saint James and more, these informative sessions include topics such as the social and political dynamics that led to the formation of the Episcopal Church, the people that were martyred in the process, and how, why and when The Book of Common Prayer was written.
This course is held each fall and spring and culminates in Bishop Scanlan’s visit to confirm and receive people into membership in the Episcopal Church and Saint James.

If you are not quite ready for confirmation or are already a member, we invite you to attend. If you cannot attend the sessions but are interested in becoming a member, please email the church office for more information.
