Saint James Episcopal Church of Goshen NY

Where Everyone Is Welcome!


For most people, the word ministry calls to mind ordained persons – bishops, priests and deacons. In fact, the word ministry has a far broader reference than merely to the ordained.

Its essential meaning originates in baptisms. It pertains to every Christian person. Ministry is the activity of the entire body of Christ. Each person has a special ministry, shaped to fit the given reality of that person’s life.

At St. James’ there are many opportunities to minister inside and outside of the parish.
