Church Services at Saint James

Worship Throughout the Week

Saturday Night Mass 5 PM

These masses offer something new and surprising each week to inspire or challenge you in your journey. A broad array of live music features favorite artists from the past, contemporary artists, and contemplative themes while being integrated into traditional Episcopal liturgy.

Sunday Mass 8:30 AM

This early service is smaller, quieter, and more traditional and if you’re an early riser, this is the ideal service for you. Join us for a few hymns, a shorter sermon, and Holy Communion. Children are always welcome!

Sunday Mass 10:30 AM

Our largest service of worship with a full choir and Holy Communion. Both formal and friendly, this is modern worship in all its traditional glory. Children are invited to join Children’s Chapel during this service, and nursery care is available for children up to the age of four.
 
Children’s full participation is welcome during the entirety of the service. For those families who desire it, we provide chapel as a worship experience for Saint James’ younger parishioners following the general flow of the Lessons, as found in the Book of Common Prayer, and following the practices of the Godly Play Foundation® for storytelling and wondering about sacred texts.

Thursday Holy Eucharist with Healing Prayers at 12:05 PM

This intimate, shorter mid-day service is held in the quietness of our chapel and combines the service of holy communion with an opportunity to also offer prayer for healing. This is the perfect refuge during a lunch break and a way to reconnect with God during a busy week.

First Friday Compline: A Nightcap for the Soul, 9 – 9:30 PM

Held on First Friday during a city-wide celebration of the arts, this short meditative service is sung by candlelight in the beautifully lit sanctuary and is the perfect way to end this Friday night.
