Whether you are new to the parish, visiting, or just not sure which door of the school will be open for an event, here’s a helpful list:

  • Knecht Conference Room — School Doors 8 & 9
  • Heller Hall — School Door 13
  • Library and Art Room — School Door 17
  • Cafeteria — School Door 18
  • Parish House — 913 Park Avenue (has a wooden ramp)

Parking

Keep a copy of the St. James campus map in your car or on your mobile device for easy reference about where to park on Sundays and for other events. Out of respect for our neighbors, please avoid parking on the north side of Park Avenue which may result in a ticket. This is a list of available parking:

  • A Lot – on the corner of Park Avenue and Spring Street
  • B Lot – on the corner of Park Avenue and Oak Street
  • C Lot – on Broad Street, in front of the School
  • Parish House Lot (with wooden ramp) – at 913 Park Avenue
  • SUNDAY MORNINGS ONLY – the top level of the garage at Founders Row

Our neighbors at Founders Row, beside the Parish House, have given us additional reserved parking in their garage on Sunday mornings. The parking on the top floor of the Founder’s Row garage is effective only Sunday mornings until 1:00pm (7:30am, 9:00am, 10:30am, and noon Masses.) Signage clearly states that the spaces are reserved for St. James on Sunday mornings. Parishioners who wish to park there should enter Founders Avenue, either from Broad Street or Park Avenue.   

From Founders Avenue, turn into the parking garage entrance next to the Modera offices (big sign).  Once in the parking garage, turn to the left and follow the overhead signs that say “Ramp Up – Additional Parking” – this will involve an eventual right turn, then go straight to the back and turn up the ramp to the right.  You’ll make another right at the top of the ramp, and then you will see the signs on the pillars saying, “St. James Church Parking Sundays 7:00am to 1:00pm.”  There is one set of elevators to take you back down after leaving your car. Leaving from the parking garage allows you to exit on Broad Street and miss all the traffic on Park Avenue.
