The Episcopal Church of St. James on the Parkway

We’re a community of faith-keeping people, beloved children of God committed to affirming the dignity and worth of all. We’ve been described as a scrappy group of folks, whose energy regularly belies our small numbers.


Our worship is grounded in the traditional rites, liturgies, and prayers of the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. It’s regularly enriched by choirs, organ, and piano — occasionally by strings and, sometimes even our seasonal All-Saints Band.

Find more information under the heading Worship.


We study scripture, tenets of the Anglican Communion, contemporary issues of peace and justice, and much more. Most recently, in relationship with our sisters and brothers of Jewish and Muslim faiths, we’re exploring the richness of our Abrahamic roots.

No uncertainty or question is denied a place at the                                                      table. Challenging speakers, discussion and readings regularly urge us into new territory.

We partner with First Nation’s Kitchen to serve health-giving food to indigenous people. Side by side with our neighbors of Nokomis East Neighborhood Association, we raise fresh vegetables for Minnehaha Food Shelf and other nearby food ministries. In partnership with Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church we nurture strengths among Families Moving Forward.

For more than 10 years, we’ve partnered with the people of Bigonet, Haiti. Within this relationship that we call Onè! Respè!   Honor!  Respect!  we serve and learn from one another. Find more information under the Menu-heading Serve.

We’re especially energized by work in partnership with our Abrahamic sisters and brothers of Jewish and Muslim faiths, including serving each month at the  food shelf hosted by At-Taqwa Mosque in St. Paul. Find more information under the heading Serve.
