Reverent Worship, Helpful Teaching, Dedicated Community
Welcome to the newest Roman Catholic Mission in Jacksonville!
Saint James is a community of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter which was established by Pope Benedict in 2012 in response to Anglicans who asked to bring their communities and liturgical and pastoral traditions back into the Catholic Church. Here at Saint James you will experience an unrushed, prayerful Mass and sacred music that brings out the best of Anglican choral tradition, the magisterial fullness of the Catholic faith joyfully explained, and a vibrant community life that is welcoming to all ages. Join us and be part of the team that shapes and constructs this mission parish to serve generations to come.
