Memorial Donations & Tribute Gifts

A Memorial Donation to St. James is a very thoughtful way to express sympathy for the loss of a special person. You can make a Memorial Donation in honor of a family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker. We will send a note to the family and to you acknowledging your gift.

You can also make a Tribute Gift to commemorate happy occasions and events through a special donation. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, retirement, graduation, a get-well wish or simply to honor a family member or friend who overcame a challenge are some of the ways you can show you care. A tribute card will be sent to the honoree and to you acknowledging your gift.

Two specific ways you can make a Memorial Donation or a Tribute Gift are:


Altar flowers and the candle in the sanctuary light, given to the glory of God, are provided each Sunday through your gifts. If you would like to remember a departed friend or relative, honor a birthday or anniversary, express gratitude for God’s gifts and blessings, by providing altar flowers or the candle in the Sanctuary Light, please make your donation to St. James Episcopal Church with Altar Guild on the memo line. Memorials will be noted in the Sunday bulletin.

For additional information about special gifts, please contact or call 248-644-0820.
