Sunday Mass 8:30 AM

This early service is smaller, quieter and more traditional. If you are 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.

First Friday Compline: Ancient Prayers for the Modern 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.

Thursday Holy Eucharist with Healing Prayers, 12:05 PM

This intimate, shorter midday 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.

Community-based Services

We offer a variety of community-based services in the homes of our young families and in the retirement communities of many of our senior citizens. Willow Valley Services on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 3 PM in The Glen and Moravian Manor services are 1st Thursday of March, June, September, December at 10:30 AM.

Contemplative Mass, Sunday evenings at 5 PM

Our contemplative mass meets in the Saint James Chapel and is a quiet, reflective service that draws from the great spiritual wisdom of Jesus in the gospels. Explore with us holy teaching and sacred music of other faith traditions, too. Come as you are, adopt the posture that’s most comfortable (yoga mats are welcome; chairs are available) and allow yourself to enter into a very different experience of God and Holy Communion.
