Communion Services at Saint James

For weekdays, no registration is necessary. Communion services will be at 9:00 a.m., Monday through Saturday. Please line up at the church's main entrance. Groups of ten will be invited in to stand at marked spots at the altar rail. After the service you are asked to exit through the Park Avenue side doors to make room for the next group.

We desire by these services to provide the Eucharist to Christ’s flock in a manner both reverent and safe. Please observe all guidelines regarding social distancing, mask wearing, and hand sanitation. The elderly (over 65 years old) and those with medical conditions are advised not to come. The priests will take every reasonable precaution in the distribution of Holy Communion. Nevertheless, please understand that no ceremony can be entirely without risk. 

Bishop Burbidge has maintained the dispensation from the Sunday obligation for all the faithful. If you begin to experience any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not attend the Communion service.
