We Welcome You in the Name of Jesus Christ our Savior

On Nov. 1 the Episcopal Church installed as the 27th presiding bishop, the most Rev. Michael B. Curry, former bishop of North Carolina and before that, rector of St. James’ Church, Lafayette Square, Baltimore. A full recap of the service, including links to view and read his sermon “We are the Jesus Movement,” is available by clicking this link.

Where Families and Friends Come to Worship
St. James’, an Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Maryland, is a growing country church in a serene setting, conveniently located at 19200 York Road in Parkton, Md., just south of the Parkton post office and Exit 33 of I-83. Farmers, retailers and railroad employees built the church a century ago so families could worship in a proper chapel, not in a dry goods store where the church was founded. St. James’ Church exists today because of their foresight.

That same vision has been held by generations of St. James’ members. We have inherited that spirit and with it a sense of history.

We invite you to join us in worship, fellowship and fun, and to be part of the future of St. James’ Church.

Our Mission:
St. James’ Church, a parish rooted in its witness to Christ, is a welcoming Episcopal community–open in spirit, deep in faith, rich in worship, and active in service.
