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.

Fishing with St. James

Last weekend we honored our parish’s patron saint; St. James the Greater (July 25 is the actual feast day). James and his brother John were called by Jesus as they worked with their father in a fishing boat on the Sea of Galilee (Mark 1:19-20). James was one of the favored three (with Peter and John) who witnessed the Transfiguration, the raising to life of the daughter of Jairus and the agony in Gethsemani. On another occasion Jesus gave James and John the nickname “sons of thunder” (Luke 9:54-55). James was apparently the first of the apostles to be martyred (Acts 12:1-3a).

Many thanks to the Social Committee for hosting the St. James Picnic last Saturday night and the Knights of Columbus who provided breakfast on Sunday morning.

You will see in the bulletin that we need some disciples willing to serve our parish in leadership positions for Oktoberfest. Contact the parish office if you are willing to step forward and serve in these or other ways.

I AM Joseph your brother. Fr. Joe Hannappel
