The oldest Episcopalian congregation in the Mesilla Valley – founded in 1875

At St. James we are a welcoming community of Christians who gather for family worship in the Anglican Liturgical Tradition. We want our message to be relevant to your daily life. Each Sunday, we want you to go home feeling like you gained something by spending time with us. Come as you are – we will gladly welcome you and make you feel at home!

The mission of St James’ Episcopal Church is to spread the love of Jesus Christ and to proclaim his Gospel; to study the scriptures and encourage the seekers; to worship God in spirit and in truth; to share our blessings with those in needs; and to welcome all who come among us.

We welcome all baptized Christians to join us in Holy Communion at our services!

O God, heavenly Father, who by Your Son Jesus Christ

have promised to all those who seek Your kingdom and its

righteousness all things necessary to sustain their life: Send

us, we entreat You, in this time of need, such moderate rain

and showers, that we may receive the fruits of the earth, to

our comfort and to Your honor; through Jesus Christ our

Lord. Amen.

Dear Friends—

As you know, wildfires continue to ravage our state. Many find themselves without food, shelter, or means to escape the path of the fires without assistance. Our friends at St. James Episcopal Church in Taos are at the forefront of the community relief effort upstate. They are asking for donations to help in their relief efforts. Rather than sending “stuff” which requires manpower, time, and space to sort and distribute (not to mention shipping costs), they are asking for donations of gift cards (e.g., Wal-Mart, Target, gas or grocery store) or cash to purchase these or laundromat vouchers locally. Donations may be made through their website, stjamestaos.com, or sent to:

St. James’ Episcopal Church

208 Camino de Santiago

Taos, NM 87571

If you click on their website’s “donate” button, you can select the rector’s or deacon’s discretionary fund and even specify how you would like your support to be used.

I’ve verified with their rector, Fr. Mac Brown, that this is the parish’s website, but I encourage you to safeguard yourself, do your own due diligence, and confirm the validity of any website used to make online donations. Alternatives would be through the Diocese of the Rio Grande’s website, or a donation in-person through your parish. (For St. James" Las Cruces, please write "NM Fire Relief" in the memo line).
