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!


Dear Friends,

The past year-and-a-half have strained the financial capacity of the parish at an unprecedented rate, and the need to shore up our financial house is urgent. Please consider what you can do to keep the St. James’ mission functioning. For those of you who have stayed the same in your giving over several years, please consider increasing your gift as you are able.

You can pledge electronically HERE.

Sunday, November 7 is our congregation’s Stewardship Celebration Sunday. We will be safely joining together to submit our pledges to God. Join us for and recommit yourself to this act of Faith.
