St. James Episcopal Church has gotten creative with Parish Life opportunities over the last couple of years. We offer in-person, online, and even hybrid opportunities to connect. We invite you to come and see! We’ve made a commitment to maintaining our connection while fostering our relationship with our neighbors and with God.
The Parish Event Committee facilitates parish events. We coordinate set-up, decorations, food/beverages and clean up. We hope that through these events, parishioners and guests will find a gathering which fosters fellowship and camaraderie while partaking of a nice meal and ‘spiritual’ beverage if desired. Simple events planned via email or meetings for more involved events. Committee members might help with food preparation, set-up, serving and/or clean-up. This committee is a great way to meet and serve with fellow parishioners. The work is light and divided among the members. We have a good time and we would love to have you on board. Please join us!
There's always something happening at St. James Parish. Keep an eye on our calendar for upcoming events for all ages.
If you would like to host an event on the Downtown Campus or at Mt. Lebanon Chapel, please complete our ONLINE FORM or reach out to our Director of Facilities, Wes Clewis at [email protected].
Find your small group! St. James parishioners regularly meet to share food, stories, prayers, grief, joys, and so much more. If you're new to St. James and interested in quickly expanding your community, you'll want to attend one of these great events to see what it's all about.
