Interim Rector Named
It is my great pleasure to announce that the Rev. Beverly Braine has agreed to serve the congregation of St. James’ Episcopal Church in Parkton as the interim rector. Beverly will assume all the authority and responsibility as rector of St. James’. Although Beverly will be working a limited schedule, she will be available for any and all pastoral needs and emergencies.

Please join the vestry and wardens of St. James’ in welcoming Beverly as our new interim rector! We look forward to our future together.

Your friend in Christ,
Phil Jeffery
Senior Warden

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.
