St. James’ is the historic parish and civic church of Louth. It is the probable burial place Saint Herefrith – of one of the Saxon bishops of what became the Diocese of Lincoln. Until his remains were removed to a rival church, his shrine in Louth was a popular place of pilgrimage.
In the mediaeval period its current dedication to Saint James became dominant, possibly linked to the pilgrimage routes to Compostella in Spain.
Today St. James remains a popular place for visitors and we pray that those who visit us are touched by the spirit of this special place and become not just visitors but pilgrims as well.
