In the spirit of Benedictine hospitality, we welcome you!

Our parish, nestled in the beauty of the Maryland countryside, invites you to...

Get Here

Map the route from your door to ours. We're eager to meet you!


Enter into an ancient faith, through the doors of an historic church, and find Christ awaiting in new and living ways.


Find ways to deepen your faith and explore the ancient spiritual paths. Our facilities include an outdoor labyrinth and a walking path with seasonal meditations including the Stations of the Cross.


Christian Formation includes a Sunday Adult Lecture series and three weekday book and Bible studies.

Bring your Family

Your children will step into a world of active learning through Children's Ministries which includes Sunday School and Children's Dinner Theater. Youth programs including Confirmation are offered for those in 6th grade and above.

Get Involved

A church is a community of people that come together, not only for worship, but for relationship. Getting involved in one or more of the ministries of St. James will enrich your life in unexpected ways. Give of yourself, and you will find a great return for your investment.
