High Mass at St James’

At 10.30 am on Sunday mornings we celebrate a solemn high mass with rich ceremony, involving priest, deacon, sub deacon, acolytes, and choir. It is a celebration of the Eucharist with inspiring music and a numinous sense of mystery.

SUNDAYS

8.00 am – Morning Prayer

A simple service of prayers, psalms, and bible readings. The foundation of the life and prayer of the Church. Morning prayer provides you with an opportunity to become more intentional in your walk with God through daily life.

8.30 am – Low Mass

Meditative, quiet, using traditional language, and lasting a little over a half hour, a Low Mass is offered nearly every day of the week. Share in an intimate setting the holy mysteries of Christ.

10.30 am – High Mass

The chief mass on Sunday, the High Mass is a sensually rich celebration of the Eucharist accompanied by inspired music, processions, incense, chanting, prayers, readings, and colourful vestments. You are invited to journey into the beauty and mystery of the triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) in a communal celebration. Although this liturgy is highly ordered, visitors soon find themselves at home, and children are very welcome. Read the service booklet.

On the last Sunday of the month, the sacrament of the laying on of hands for healing and anointing with oil is offered at the both Low and High Mass.

5.00 pm – Evening Prayer

A simple service of prayers, psalms, and bible readings. The foundation of the life and prayer of the Church. Morning and Evening prayer, known also as the daily offices, bookend the day in prayer and provide you with an opportunity to become more intentional in your walk with God through daily life.
