WORSHIP IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL WE DO
St. James' gathers for daily prayers throughout the week, in addition to our four services on Sunday. Please join us as often as you can! Our doors are open to all.
The Church is open for prayer and meditation on Sundays from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and Tuesdays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Come pray in the quiet of the Church, and light a candle amidst the busyness of the city.
MONDAY - FRIDAY, 8:00 A.M.
Morning Prayer (Mon., Tues., Thurs., Fri.)
This simple morning service is the perfect way to begin each day centered in prayerful attention to God. A 20-minute service, it includes Psalms, Bible readings and prayers, and is led by specially trained lay members of the parish.
Holy Eucharist (Wednesday)
At the center of our week is an intimate celebration of Holy Communion in the Chapel. This 30-minute service includes a short homily by one of the clergy. From September through May, it is also followed by the Wednesday Bible Study, to which all are welcome.
Mondays at 6:30 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:00 p.m.
Do you long for some moments of stillness and quiet attention to God in your life? Centering Prayer is a meditative form of prayer oriented toward the cultivation of interior silence or "centering." Two Centering Prayer groups support each other in the discipline. For more information, email Matthew Leaycraft.
THURSDAY WORSHIP FOR FAMILIES
Thursdays at 4:45 p.m.
During the academic year, Thursdays for Families @ St. James’ offers Christian education, fun and creative crafts, age-appropriate and accessible worship, and a buffet dinner for children ages 2-10 and their parents or caregivers. Once per month, this includes a celebration of the Holy Eucharist in the Church. All are welcome! Contact Vicki Hall to learn more.
DAILY PRAYER - WHEREVER YOU ARE
At the center of the Anglican spiritual tradition is a practice of saying daily morning and evening prayers. These services are often referred to as "the Daily Office," and can be found near the front of the Book of Common Prayer.
We offer Morning Prayer at St. James' Monday through Friday, with a service of Holy Eucharist on Wednesdays. For parishioners unable to attend that service, or for anyone who would like to learn more about how to incorporate this practice into their lives, we offer a few online resources to help introduce this form of prayer, including websites and apps for smartphones and tablets that allow you to say the Office wherever you may be.
