Welcome to St. James Anglican Church, A place for Worship, Caring, Learning and Fun.

And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day  approaching  

Hebrews 10:24-25 (NRSV)

Window #14      LORD NOW LETTEST THOU THY SERVANT DEPART IN PEACE


In this window the baby Jesus is shown being brought to the Temple by Joseph and Mary and Simeon taking him up in his arms.


Simeon was a righteous and devout man living in Jerusalem.  It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ.  When Jesus was brought into the Temple by his parents to do for him after the custom of the law, Simeon took him up in his arms and praised God.


This song of Simeon's is known as the Nunc Dimities and to this day is used in the liturgy of our Church.


Dedication:

  • To the Honour and Glory of God and in Memory of Samuel M. Albro and Family
