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.

Pescando con Santiago – Fishing with St. James

Quiero agradecer al grupo de líderes hispanos y todos los
involucrados en los preparativos de nuestra Señora de Guadalupe,
la celebración Eucarística, la música, los bailes tradicionales
por feligreses y la fiesta de alimentos. El día fue un gran testimonio
a nuestro espíritu de comunidad y "Nuestra Señora, emperatriz
de las Américas" que apareció en México en 1531.

I want to thank the Hispanic Leadership Group and everyone
involved in the Our Lady of Guadalupe preparations, celebration
of Eucharist, music, traditional dancing by parishioners and
the feast of food. The day was a great witness to our community
spirit and to “Our Lady, the patroness of the Americas” who
appeared in Mexico in 1531.

The “Christmas Wish List” insert in today’s bulletin, provides
opportunities to participate in the practical needs of our
parish. As you can see on the other page of this bulletin, we are
approximately - $25,000 behind in our needed income. I
hope you will continue to commit to your regular weekly,
monthly or annual gift and a special Christmas donation/gift to
our parish. We also budget $25,000 for the Christmas Collection.
As stewards of the gifts God has entrusted to you, please
consider making an extra effort to support our parish.

“Maranatha -Come Lord Jesus!” Fr. Joe Hannappel
