Here at St. James the Less, parishioners seek to witness the transformational love of God through ministries that praise God and reach out.
Episcopalians are Anglicans in America and our worship services creatively honor the ancient liturgies of the church using both traditional and contemporary language. We are an inclusive community and all faith backgrounds are welcome to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion offered each week at our two principle worship services.
A dynamic community of all ages, we practice the Christian faith together in many ways including regular Meditation Groups, a growing Community Food Garden open to the public, and creative, meaningful liturgies like our Candlelit Good Friday Taize Service and The Beatles Mass.
St. James the Less worships God in action as well as word. Our outreach ministries strive to share our gifts to care for those on the edge of life in our village, in the city of Chicago, and in the world. There is some way for all people to participate in sharing the love of God by feeding, clothing, and walking along side those in need.
