Special Services

Besides the three Sunday services, there are many other opportunities for people to worship and pray at St. James. The Cathedral Choir provides music for these services unless otherwise noted. On the first Sunday of each month, is a particularly moving service of choral evensong, a service of song, stillness, and scripture. Per the guidelines of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, these special choral services are being presented virtually for the foreseeable future for health and safety. Feast Days are services that commemorate important moments in the life of Jesus and the Church. The principal feasts of the church year are Easter Day, Ascension Day, the Day of Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, All Saints' Day, Christmas Day, and the Epiphany.
