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. Right now, we are in the midst of an exciting time in the development of our parish as we have vacated our church structure for a year-long renovation project. This time of sacrifice and growth, we pray, will ultimately strengthen our community and our faith as we return to a renewed place to gather and worship.

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 at our various gathering points in Kearney. 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.

In July of 2011, Sr. Patty Rinn, O.P. returned to St. James as a member of the staff to work in Pastoral Ministry. She previously ministered at St. James for seven years (2001 to 2008), then for three years (2008-2011) she served her religious community in Trinidad. This year Sr. Patty was asked by her Sinsinawa Dominican Congregation to serve as the next Prioress of St. Dominic’s Villa for sisters needing skilled nursing care.

Sr. Patty will leave our parish after our farewell celebrations after all the Masses next weekend June 4/5. It has been an honor and a grace to serve this parish with her. I have appreciated her deep faith, commitment to service, prayerfulness, leadership and love of liturgy. Her passion, wisdom and guidance were vital to the success of the renovation of our building and guided us in our ongoing community building during the process.

I will greatly miss her presence, ministry and companionship! I will offer this Dominican Blessing for her on behalf of our parish: May God, Creator, bless you. May God, Redeemer, heal you. May God, the Holy Spirit, fill you with Light.

I AM Joseph your brother and pastor,
Fr. Joe Hannappel
