ST. JAMES

Catholic Church

A Roman Catholic Community of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter

Experience the solemnity and beauty of Divine Worship, find freedom and life through the Sacraments of the Church, and be welcomed into a family friendly community alive with the joy of the Gospel.

St. James is a community which is in the initial stage of being formed into a mission for the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, a diocesan like structure established by Pope Benedict in 2012 which was designed to allow former Protestants to bring with them into the Catholic Church much of the unique beauty and richness of liturgical traditions reaching back to the middle ages. It is composed of over forty and counting, Catholic parishes and mission communities, led by Bishop Steven J. Lopes, who was appointed by Pope Francis in 2016.
