There’s a local group traveling to Blue Knob, Pennsylvania, this summer, June 29 through July 5, for a mission trip through Team Effort. It includes youth from St. James Church here in Montclair as well as St. Peter’s in Essex Fells. This is designed for those high-school age or older and can include such things painting, home repair, roofing, and building wheelchair ramps. The cost is $289 for the week, and the group will stay at a local resort, with access to a swimming pool and volleyball court. 

Our Life in Christ

Our Weekly Services are traditional in style, yet intimate and familial in tone. We use the Episcopal liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer, and we have been open to using prayers and readings from other sources and traditions. We have had a rabbi give guest sermons, and have shared a service with a Muslim congregation. We encourage the children and youth of our parish to participate in our services by making presentations and giving individual readings and musical solos.


Second Thursday of the month 7:30-9 p.m.

Meets in the undercroft (church basement); contact the helpline 908-300-4227or e-mail for details or change of venue information.
