Our Church – What We Believe

As a Church, the Society of St James is committed to the spread of Gospel through Word and Sacrament. We are a member of Christ’s One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

As a Church which is a Priestly Society (rather than a diocese), we focus on bringing the Word and Sacraments to people in non-traditional settings. Whether in a parish, a chapel, a hospital, military or emergency services chaplaincies, or in a private oratory, you will enjoy a time of sacramental worship led by a valid priest committed to the traditional faith of the Church.
