We Seek Christ in Serving Others

“Service is what prayer looks like when it gets up off its knees and walks around in the world.”
~Fr. Michael J. Graham, SJ

“People say, ‘What is the sense of our small effort?’ They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time. A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. Each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that. No one has a right to sit down and feel hopeless. There’s too much work to do.” Dorothy Day

Stewardship Ministries

At St. James, “stewardship” refers to all the things we do to ensure the ongoing and sustainable operation of the parish in all of its practical aspects, from establishing the annual budget to keeping the parish office running effectively; from planning and staffing the next fundraiser to updating the website.  If you would like to support the smooth running our parish, click here to learn how you can get involved in any of our stewardship committees

Parish Ministries

St. James is a strong, compassionate, and vibrant parish family, rooted in the Lord through the Eucharist and each other.  These ministries support our Sunday worship, faith activities, and fellowship. 


Outreach Ministries

We are the hands and face of the Lord to all whom we meet.  St. James’ outreach to the surrounding community and beyond has grown organically, reflecting both the current issues in our society, the diverse interests of our parishioners, and our deep commitment to social justice.  The following is a list of ministries, organizations and partnerships through which St. James people make a broader impact in the world.

“The place God calls you to be is the place where your deep gladness
and the world’s deep hunger meet.”  –
Frederick Buechner, Ordained Presbyterian Minister
