We are excited to welcome our faith family back to 9AM Sunday Mass at St. James Church!

To worship together safely, we are are limiting our seating to 100 worshipers at each Mass. We'll be inviting groups in alphabetical order so everyone who is ready to rejoin us has a chance to worship as space is available. You can register on a first-come, first-served basis so we can safely socially distance in our beautiful church.

We encourage anyone who is in a high-risk group or uncomfortable in public spaces to continue to worship with us online at stjameschatham.org. 

Please plan to arrive early if you are joining us for Mass; the church will be open at 8:30 AM. Please expect to be screened and registered when you arrive so that we can provide contact tracing if necessary.  

 By joining us at Mass, you agree to follow these guidelines to protect your own, and respect fellow worshipers' health: 

  • You are in good health to attend Mass - on arrival, you will be screened for symptoms, contacts, and travel that might put you or others at risk. Please note travelers arriving from overseas as well as states subject to 14-day quarantine in New York State (please see please see https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory for the latest list of US states subject to New York State travel restrictions). 
  • You will wear a mask for the entire service, and on the sidewalks around the Church 
  • You will enter through the MAIN DOOR of the church if using the Bank parking lot, and CORNER ENTRANCE DOOR if entering throught the parking lot adjacent to the church. 
  • You will follow the guidance of ushers and greeters, and maintain social distancing as you enter, exit and move around the church.   .  
  • You will use hand sanitizer - we recommend bringing your own, but we will have sanitizers available throughout the church 
  • Parishioners are kindly asked not to congregate in the church or in parking lots 

We encourage you to consider making your weekly offering online at https://www.stjameschatham.org/online-giving but you can also drop your offering in baskets upon leaving the church.
