St. James is a community of prayer. We gather as a community on Sundays, during the week, and our Day School gathers twice a week. We have all seen the power of prayer and St. James would like to offer an opportunity for you. We are looking for a group of people that would be willing to commit themselves to praying for those on our prayer list. The prayer list will be sent to you during the week, and we simply ask that you pray for each person on the list. You might commit to doing this one day a week, or to praying daily. The purpose is to offer up those on the list, in your home or some quiet place, so that the individuals on the list will have the prayer support of many people. If you are interested, send your email address to Sylvia Rabalais in the church office.

Lent Retreat Registration

Join us on Saturday, March 23, 9:00 a.m. to noon, for a Lenten Quiet Day led by the Rev. Janet Vincent.


While serving as rector of Grace Church in White Plains, New York, she volunteered as a chaplain at the World Trade Center site after the events of 9/11. Her experiences were featured on PBS' NewsHour in 2006, as they observed the fifth anniversary of that terrible day.


Janet will use excerpts from a journal she kept of her time at Ground Zero as she explores questions of doubt, faith, hope and companionship.
