St. James' Parish is as diverse as our 300+ years of history. We draw from the Annapolis area and as far south as Calvert County. We have over 325 families and individuals. At the same time we are striving to, in some ways, remain a parish where everyone feels connected and a part of a vibrant Christian Community. Our parish emphasizes "Remembering the Past, Living our faith, and Worshipping into the Future". In the midst of the Eucharist each Sunday, we clearly proclaim "This is not our table, it is the Lord's, and everyone is Welcome". The Eucharist is extended to young and older, for we are all God's children. We are Sisters and Brothers in Christ and as such it is essential that we relate to each other as a family.

All Hallows' Eve Celebration
On Friday, October 24th from 6-8 PM, there will be an All Hallows' Eve party for our Atrium children. All children, ages pre-K through grade 5 are welcome to join the party, friends and relatives are welcome too! There will be food, games, and crafts, as well as treats. Beginning at 7:30 PM, the kids will go into the St. James' parking lot to enjoy Trunk and Treat.
We invite our older crowd to park their cars, decorate their car/truck trunks, wear their costumes, and bring treats to hand out to the children as they stop by each trunk. We ask that the trunks be ready by 7:30 PM.

The 6th-12th grade youth will meet in the St. James' Parish Hall by 8 PM (by 5 PM if they are helping with the children's party), on Friday evening.
