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 we will have a Franciscan Mission Appeal by Fr. Benoît Ndayizayeo, ofm. Fr. Benoît is a Burundian by nationality, born in Gitega Province of Burundi, East Africa. He became full pledged Franciscan as a member of the Province of St. Francis of Assisi in Kenya (Nairobi) in 2014 and was ordained priest in 2015. Envelopes will be available this weekend and at the office. If you write a check make it to St. James Church – Franciscan Mission Appeal. We will take care of getting the money to the missions.

Every third Sunday of the month we have a second collection for Habitat for Humanity and the Jubilee Center. We divide the donations evenly between these are two local agencies that serve people in need. Jubilee Center has experienced a significant increase in people needing assistance. Funds are directed to help with lodging, utilities, vehicle gas and other emergency needs. The Jubilee Center is a highly valued, sought-out and very much utilized community service center. I appreciate those who already support this important community outreach and hope that even more people will participate in this important collection.

I encourage you buy a ticket and attend Reboot Live! on September 1st. Chris Stefanick speaks to over 50,000 teens, young adults, and parents every year and we are fortunate to have him in Kearney. The bulletin insert provides more information. Tickets will be sold after Mass and at the office during the week.

“I am Joseph your brother,”
