  • When you become seriously ill, are dealing with a newly diagnosed disease or condition, or are hospitalized for treatment, surgery, or rehabilitation

  • When you are experiencing a spiritual, physical, emotional or financial crisis

  • When you become concerned for the person who usually shares the pew with you because he or she has not been in church for a while

  • When you experience one of life's many transitions: a birth, a death, a job loss/change, a move, an empty nest, retirement, etc.

  • When you need prayer and care but don't want to "bother" anyone with your troubles -- please contact us anyway; you will not be "bothering" us!

Intercessory Prayer

As The Catechism in The Book of Common Prayer reminds us, “Intercession brings before God the needs of others.”  Members of the Intercessory Prayer ministry pray daily for those in need.  Requests for public and private prayers are received from the St. James’ community either directly or through the Church Office.

Members of this ministry meet once monthly for a brief service of worship, followed by a period of silence and prayer, after which the list of prayer requests are reviewed and updated.

The Intercessory Prayer ministry meets at 7:00 pm on the second Tuesday of each month in the Chancel of the Nave.

For more information, contact the Church Office.

Eucharistic Visitors

Lay people, licensed by the Diocese, take and administer the elements (the consecrated bread and wine) to members of the congregation who by reason of illness or infirmity are unable to be present at worship by virtue of being homebound, hospitalized, or in an assisted living or skilled nursing facility.
