    { We're Glad You've Visited }

    We welcome you and invite you to enter into a deeper exploration of a community that shares the love of Jesus Christ with each other, our city, and the world. It takes more than a few words to describe a parish, but there are two things we can tell you right away: we are committed to Jesus Christ and from that commitment flows our care for one another and our ministries. In every ministry and program, we at St. James' Church on Madison Avenue at 71st Street invite you to enter more deeply into the life we share in Christ. We hope you will join us.

    The Rev. Brenda G. Husson, Rector

    { First Time Families }

    We've found that St. James' mix of rich Anglican tradition and innovative, fun family worship and programming is just the right recipe for helping kids know God's love.

    When you come to church at St. James', you can expect to find...

    SPACE TO PRAY. Our services include hymns, prayers, and time for silence, as well as Communion and sermons that connect our Scriptures to our lives.

    SPACE TO BE YOURSELF. Worshipers at St. James' come from many different places, backgrounds, and perspectives.

    SPACE TO MAKE CONNECTIONS. Whether it's your first time or your thousandth, there's always an opportunity to get better connected with God and one another. Join us at coffee hour or stop by the Welcome station on your way out. We look forward to meeting you.

Confirmation

Confirmation & Reception

The Sacrament of Confirmation is the rite by which we make a mature profession of our faith before the Bishop and take on responsibility for our faith and membership in the Church. Since we become full members of Christ’s Body and the Church through our baptism, confirmation is a strengthening of the gifts given to us in baptism so that we can enter into our vocation, our calling, as Christians.  

Confirmation is also the way to officially become an Episcopalian. If you have already been confirmed by a bishop in the Roman Catholic Church or the Lutheran Church, you may be received into the Episcopal Church by the bishop at the same confirmation service.

 

Interested in confirmation or reception?

  • If you are entering 8th grade this year, now is the time to register for Confirmation Class! Now is also the time to tell your friends; confirmation class is a great time to join the Youth Program at St. James'. Contact Chris Harding to learn more.

  • Adults who are interested in being Confirmed should contact the Rev. Ryan Fleenor and plan to enroll in the next offering of the Catechumenate

  • Confirmation Sunday will be April 30, 2017.
