Saint James Episcopal Church

Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit


We are a small, inclusive Episcopal Church that hosts a broad-based Spiritual Center for the community.
We seek new ways to relate with and serve God in this place and celebrate the fullness of life in each individual.

Sunday Service, 10 am on Zoom

Father Jeff retired. His past sermons are posted on our YouTube Channel: a hidden gem. Read or hear Father Jeff’s sermons connecting our traditional faith with the world we live in, seeking wisdom and love for day to day life, and life beyond the day to day. 

While our congregation is transitioning, services continue to be conducted every Sunday.

The Church and McGowan House are reopening

The church and the McGowan House Center are re-opening slowly. With limited capacity, the church is now celebrating the Holy Eucharist on Sunday mornings.  Meanwhile, groups that used to meet at McGowan House pre-COVID are gathering back again.

Through the decades, McGowan House has become an ever more inclusive, welcoming place, a spiritual center for groups of diverse sensibilities. Take a look at the Taking Place page to see the calendar or at the Spiritual Center page to know more about McGowan House.

Engaging in the sanctuary movement

“While not declaring the Episcopal Church as a sanctuary church, the resolution urges members of the church to challenge unjust immigration laws and calls on congregations to become places of welcome, refuge, and healing and to provide other forms of material and pastoral support.” Read more at
