To be known to us...

As an Episcopal Church in ministering in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, the Parish of St. Monica and St. James is committed to using the two great legacies of the Anglo-Catholic movement:

  • Social justice and worship-centered faith

  • To make the Incarnate Word of God real to a 21st century audience  

So often being "Anglo-Catholic" is defined solely in terms of unrelenting traditionalism, while social justice roots are de-emphasized or ignored.  Our mission here at St. Monica and St. James is to continually recall the activist spirit of our tradition and translate that spirit here and now in Washington, D.C.
