Join us as we learn a calming, centering, contemplative form of prayer - a source of Christ's peace for anxious times. No experience or familiarity with this form of prayer is assumed.
You can learn how to pray the Anglican Rosary by reading the attached PDFs below under 'Downloads.' Our most recent document is the one for Ascension-Pentecost.
Please contact Fr. Chris if you have questions, if you would like one-on-one help in learning to pray the rosary, and to register for our Ascension workshop on Thursday 17 June, 7:00pm.
The Anglican rosary blends the Catholic rosary and the Orthodox Jesus prayer rope and encourages a wider range of prayers. It is a simple form of contemplative prayer available to all of God's children, and is a way of allowing God's Word to sink deeply into our hearts.
Rosaries made by St. James member Sharon Mulder are available from the church.
Fr. Chris also highly recommends the The Anglican Rosary Prayer Book, which can be purchased here.

In our first session, we learned to pray the ancient Jesus Prayer using our rosaries. This article helpfully explores the biblical roots of the Jesus Prayer.
