SERVICES AND GATHERINGS THIS WEEK


SUNDAY, February 25, 2024 – 10:00 a.m. – 2nd Sunday in Lent - Vestry Sunday!

If you are unable to attend, the service is live streamed. For links to the service and

WEDNESDAY – COMPLINE – 9:15 p.m. Note the time change for two more weeks! Compline is a short service of night prayer. The heart of Compline is the recitation of several psalms. There is a short reading from scripture, intercession, and time for reflection. It is a beautiful way to close out an active day. Compline is offered by St. James’ through Facebook to bring the community together. If you cannot join live, the service is available afterwards on St. James’ Facebook channel.
