Our Mission

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.

Fishing with St. James

May 16, 2021


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The month of May is a time when the People of God express with particular intensity their love and devotion for the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is traditional in this month to pray the Rosary at home within the family. The restrictions of the pandemic have made us come to appreciate all the more this “family” aspect, also from a spiritual point of view.

For this reason, I want to encourage everyone to rediscover the beauty of praying the Rosary at home in the month of May. This can be done either as a group or individually; you can decide according to your own situations, making the most of both opportunities. The key to doing this is always simplicity, and it is easy also on the internet to find good models of prayers to follow.

Dear brothers and sisters, contemplating the face of Christ with the heart of Mary our Mother will make us even more united as a spiritual family and will help us overcome this time of trial. I keep all of you in my prayers, especially those suffering most greatly, and I ask you, please, to pray for me. I thank you, and with great affection I send you my blessing.

Pescando con Santiago


Queridos hermanos y hermanas,

El mes de mayo es un tiempo cuando las Gente de Dios expresa con intensidad particular su amor y devoción a nuestra Bendecida Virgen Maria. Es tradición en este mes rezar el Rosario en casa con familia. Las restricciones de la pandemia han hecho que tengamos mas aprecio hacia el aspecto “familiar” de un punto espiritual.

Por esta razón los quiero animar a todos a redescubrir la belleza de rezar el Rosario en casa en el mes de mayo. Esto puede hecho en grupo o individualmente; usted puede decidir en acorde con su situación, haciendo lo mejor de ambas oportunidades. La clave de hacer esto es la simplicidad y es fácil también en el internet encontrar modelos de oraciones para seguir.

Queridos hermanos y hermanas, contemplando la cara de Cristo con el corazón de Maria nuestra Madre nos hará aun mas unidos como familia espiritual y nos ayudará a sobresalir los tiempos de pruebas. Los tendré en mis oraciones especialmente a los que están sufriendo lo mas grande y les pido a ustedes que por favor que oren por mí. Les doy las Gracias y con gran afección les mando mi bendición.
