Where We Pray: St. James Episcopal Church welcomes the chance to extend a hand in Westwood

CINCINNATI - The Tri-State is rich in the number and variety of houses of worship. In our weekly feature, WCPO shines the spotlight on where we pray.

St. James Episcopal Church worshipers practice their faith in a broad and inclusive manner. For a church its size, St. James has a vibrant music program that focuses on engaging neighborhood children and teenagers. The church collaborates with community groups in Westwood on projects such as the Pop-Up Beer Garden with Westwood Works and Westwood’s local farm stand initiative with Findlay Market.

"Christ's mission begins and continues in worship, but is lived out in the world. We experience God’s creative love in all aspects of life,"  said Rev. Jim Strader, Rector.
