Welcome to the Episcopal Church of St. James!
Located in the heart of Upper Montclair and worshiping in the Episcopal tradition, St. James is an inclusive community focused on faith, family and fellowship.
We seek to:
Collect for the Community
Gracious God, strengthen in us two values that we hold central as a Christian Community. These values are inspired by Jesus' two great commandments. First, we love God or something greater than ourselves with all our hearts and mind, and second we commit to loving our neighbor as we love ourselves. There is no boundary or condition to our love and commitment to God or to our neighbor, no matter who they may be. All are welcome in this place. Amen.

Registration now open for the 2024-2025 school year
- St. James School is a non-sectarian program that has been serving Upper Montclair and its surrounding communities for nearly 30 years. We are dedicated to developing the emotional, intellectual, social and physical growth of our students. We believe that education is a cooperative effort among students, parents and staff, designed to stimulate the creativity and achievements of each child. Our teachers place emphasis on the process and the joy of learning and creating, rather than on the finished product. Each young person entrusted to us is important, and we consider it an honor and a privilege to be a part of his or her life! Don't wait to register for the 2024-25 school year.
