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.

This weekend, St. James honors our parishioners who will be graduating from Kearney Senior High, Kearney Catholic, and many of our surrounding area high schools. We sent out fifty-six invitations encouraging our graduating seniors to participate in the 10:30 Sunday Mass.

Catholic Relief Service personnel have been on the ground in Nepal working to assist 10,000 with emergency shelters, water, blankets, water treatment kits, and hygiene kits. They are also procuring emergency supplies in India to be used in Nepal, and will have available 3,000 more tarps within the next two days. Much more will be needed as the full depth of the crisis unfolds.

Bishop Hanefeldt asks that parishes in the diocese collect donations for CRS’s work in Nepal. You are encouraged to make a donation to St. James with the notation that the funds are for CRS/Nepal. St. James will take up a second collection on the weekend of May 9/10. On Mother’s Day weekend please consider helping mothers in Nepal take care of their families. If anyone wishes to donate online, the link to do so is: https://secure.crs.org/site/Donation2?df_id=8400&8400.donation=form1

I am Joseph your brother sharing the journey of community and faith. Fr. Joe
