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.

Crucified, Buried and Risen with St. James Catholic Community

Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord signals that Lent is drawing to a close and we are entering the most sacred time of the Church Year.

The Paschal Triduum (The Three Days) and the fifty days of Easter are the goal of our forty days of preparation. St. Augustine called this “the triduum of the crucified, buried and risen.” The Triduum Entrance Antiphon tells us how to live this great mystery: “We should glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, for he is our salvation, our life and our resurrection: through him we are saved and made free.” (see Galatians 6:14)

Arrange your week to make it “holy” by joining the community in celebrating these central mysteries of our faith. Make the liturgical celebrations a priority and fit the rest of your week around them. This is our annual parish and universal church retreat. The times of services are in this bulletin. If you cannot attend the services make time to pray at home or visit the church. As we experience this mystery of our salvation, may we all live, die, and rise in unity with the whole church.

I am Joseph your brother in the paschal mystery!
