St. James' Anglican Church is located on the outskirts of the village of Murillo, 20 km to the north and west of St. Mark's and approximately 20 km west of the city of Thunder Bay. Sunday services are held at 11 am from September to June. During the summer months, a combined Sunday service commencing at 10 am is rotated between St. James and St. Mark's. The services, employing the Book of Alternative Services and the Common Book of Prayer, are relaxed and involve many parishioners in various roles. The services are generally one hour in length. Warmth and friendliness, and a sense of rural community, distinguish the worship of this church.
St. James was built in 1884 on five acres of land donated by John Baxendale, and the first service was held on October 28. In September 1885 Bishop Sullivan, accompanied by Reverend J. C. Machin visited the mission and consecrated the church. In 1886 an additional six acres of land was purchased and the rectory was constructed in 1904. The church was closed throughout the war years and reopened in 1920. A fire completely destroyed the building and its contents in 1924 and a new church was built on the same spot on 1926. It was consecrated in 1929 by Bishop Roksborough Smith. The rectory was demolished in 1944. In 1950, St. James ceased to be a mission and became part of the self-supporting Parish of West Thunder Bay.
St. Mark's is located in Rosslyn, 5 km from the western limit of the City of Thunder Bay. Sunday services are at 9:30 am from September to June. During the summer, a combined Sunday service is roated between St. Mark's and St. James. The services, employing the Book of Alternative Services and the Book of Common Prayer, are relaxed and involve many parishioners in a number of roles. This congregation likes to sing!
St. Mark's had its beginning at a Vestry meeting on January 25, 1953. At that time, church services and a Sunday school with 50 children on its roll were held at Rosslyn Hall. At the 1956 Vestry meeting, a motion was passed stating that a church be built as soon as possible and a sod-turning ceremony was held on the evening of April 16, 1956. People of various denominations and religious beliefs generously gave help from near and far. The men of the community provided the labour while the women gave financial and moral support , raising funds by staging suppers, teas, bazaars and bake sales. The first service was held on Christmas Eve of 1956, and on May 26, 1957, the Most Rev. W. L. Wright, Archbishop of Algoma, dedicated the church. In 2006, work began on a building expansion. After completion, it was dedicated by Bishop Ronald Ferris on December 2, 2007.
