Welcome

Thank you for visiting the St. James website. Wherever you are on life’s journey, we welcome you to join us in worship and companionship. We believe that we are all seekers on a quest for meaning and purpose and wish to create a renewed communion with the Sacred, the Holy One, God. That search is done individually and together with joy.

In a word, St. James means Hospitality. We need and depend on one another to become more fully human and thus closer to our Creator. We do this in our prayer life, our social life and our outreach to the world around us. We are changing and evolving creatures of God and in these turbulent times, we strive to be a beacon of hope for each other and for our community.

St. James is an Episcopal church, part of the world-wide Anglican Communion. We honor the traditions of the past while welcoming people of all faiths. Our roots are deep as St. James has been serving North Salem and the neighboring communities since 1731.

Browse our website and if you have any questions or would like more information about how to participate more fully in the life of St. James, please feel free to speak with the Rector, any of our parishioners or simply call the office. We look forward to hearing from you!
