Join St. James the Less on Sunday, May 22, as we celebrate our Sesquicentennial Birthday! We'll start the celebration at our 10 am Eucharist and continue with a catered luncheon immediately following the service. We'll include a bit of history and a lot of fun...for all ages! All current and former priests, deacons, parishioners, and friends of St. James the Less, including Region 11 church members, are invited. Don’t miss the chance to celebrate this monumental anniversary and to hear guest preacher, the Rev. Canon Pat Wingo, Canon to the Ordinary for the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia.

REQUEST FOR AN INTERVIEW. The high school youth group has been asked to create a video montage of what parishioners say they like about St. James the Less and of special memories parishioners want to share. Over the next few Sundays, you may be asked by a high school student for an interview that will contribute to this footage. Everyone will be able to view the complete montage at our Sesquicentennial Celebration. We hope you say Yes!
