Overview of Ministries at St. James
Priest in Charge: Fr. Tom Graf


St. James the Fisherman Episcopal Church is a vibrant community of faith rooted in the centuries old Anglican tradition. 
When you visit you will notice that we celebrate Jesus' love through worship, inspiring preaching, warm fellowship, generous community outreach and loving pastoral care.

We offer our worship with a mixture of traditional and contemporary styles - enhanced by inspiring music.

Our congregation is multigenerational, with new families worshiping alongside longtime members who go back to the beginning of this parish.

We enjoy a full Christian life at St. James: worshiping, studying, socializing and serving God through the various ministries of the Church.
