Metropolitan Japanese Ministry

The EPISCOPAL CHURCH of ST. JAMES the LESS

Metropolitan Japanese Ministry

Metropolitan Japanese Ministry

For over forty years, the Japanese-speaking Episcopal congregation of the Diocese of New York has met at St. James the Less every second Sunday of the month. In April 2021 they welcomed a new priest, the Rev. Kyrie Kim, who also serves as an assisting priest at St. James the Less. This partnership between the two congregations--English-speaking and Japanese--has been longstanding, and we look forward to a fruitful relationship ahead under the guidance of Mother Kim.

From their website:

MJM offers you an oasis of support, the enjoyment of ecumenical and interfaith friendships, and wide ranging opportunities to understand Christian faith and American life. Through MJM Americans can meet and share experiences with Japanese people.  The participation of both Japanese and Americans make MJM unique ministry.

Outreach and service to our community and the world is one of our primary pursuits as the Church of St. James the Less.We are part of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, and in addition to our local work in the parish (listed below) we're a partner with the diocese in many initiatives throughout the region. Some of our parishioners and clergy serve on diocesan boards and committees such as the Rural and Migrant Ministry, Episcopal Charities, the New York Haiti Project and the Diocesan Reparations Committee. You can read more about these and more below. If you are passionate about helping and feeding the hungry, racial justice, caring for the less fortunate, we will put you to work!
