Welcome to St. James

After more than 150 years in the Kearney community, St. James parish has a rich history as a community of Catholic worship and an established legacy of service to the people of the Kearney area.

St. James parish was established in the 1860s to be a sign of the presence of the Kingdom of God, to spread the Good News of the Gospel and to minister and serve others. As Catholics we believe in Jesus' dying and rising and in our call to celebrate the Sacraments and proclaim the Gospel.

We welcome our Catholic brothers and sisters, our visitors from other denominations, people new to Kearney or just stopping through, to pray and celebrate the Sacraments with us. Join us. You will be welcomed and embraced as we are called to celebrate, with you, and ask you to join us in being a sign of the presence of God.

The following is an edit of the update I put in the bulletin on February 1, 2015, some of the dates have changed since that time.

St. James Building Project Team has finished the design phase with RDg and the projected cost estimates have increased to $3 million dollars. The initial projections were for beginning construction in the fall of 2014. With the increased construction costs we are now required to install sprinklers in the renovated part of the building. We are adding the cost of replacing our boiler with a more efficient one and addressing some other issues that came up in the design process. Some important items will be added to “Phase 1” as alternate bids and will be completed if the funds are available (estimated to be $249,000). At this time we are planning on March 3 to be the bid opening date. If all goes as planned we hope to sign a contract by March 15 and begin construction by the end of April. The construction time is likely to be nine months to one year. During that time the offices will have to relocate and we will have Sunday Mass in another location. As decisions are made and plans are finalized we will share that information.

Have a blessed Lent. Fr. Joe Hannappel
