St. James Church of St. Mary Magdalene Parish

Many of the early parishioners at St. James Church came from coal mining backgrounds. The first church burned down and the congregation faced the challenge of rebuilding. This is the church of Rev. Lambing, legendary historian, of Rev. Walsh, architectural visionary, and Rev. Murphy who encouraged music and was known to play the pipe organ.

The church has a long history of community involvement in many forms. The St. James Ministry Center encourages volunteering.
