St. James is a community filled with hope striving to keep alive the apostolic spirit of our namesake. By virtue of our common baptism and in union with the Diocese of Pittsburgh, we believe in the Love of God the Father, the Presence of God the Son and the Guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Founded in 1863, our legacy of persistence and resilience gives us the confidence to journey forward into the future.  The Eucharist is the center of our lives forming us into a people that mirror the boundless embrace of Christ’s Love where all can find a home at St. James Parish.

Pastoral Council - Facilitator

Patte Grey

The Pastoral Council ensures the Christ-like quality of a vibrant pastoral life at St. James Parish by engaging in annual and continuous planning that includes crafting the parish’s mission, assessing the parish’s needs within the context of changing times, and developing a Parish Pastoral Plan with a vision, goals and objectives; implementing those objectives, evaluating pro-grams, organizations and ministries, and celebrating successes. The Pastoral Council collaborates with the Parish Finance Council to achieve the vision of the Pastoral Plan by leading the parish (parishioners, staff, ministries, organizations and programs) to a fuller manifestation of the Kingdom through inviting them to own the vision and work to accomplish it.
