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.

In the September 14, 2018 West Nebraska Register, Bishop Hanefeldt directed all the parishes in the diocese to make the Prayer of St. Michael the Archangel available to be prayed at every Mass. He also asked for a weekly hour of Eucharistic Adoration as prayer and penance for healing, conversion and reparation. After the 7:00 a.m. Friday Mass, St. James will have an hour of Eucharistic Adoration from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. You will find more information in his article in the Register. I also encourage you to read Fr. Ron Rolheiser’s article, ‘A time of raw anger and dark grief’ in the same edition.

This September we will be providing information and registration forms for the “Be My Witness / Sean Mis Testigos” small group faith sharing (English y Español). We will be inviting everyone in the parish to participate in this six session process for community building and outreach. I hope that you prayerfully consider making Be My Witness / Sean Mis Testigos a part of your spiritual and communal life this fall.

Information about our Oktoberfest, on October 7th, was mailed to all parishioners September 7th. Please consider participating in one of the many ways listed in the invitation. We need everyone’s help and participation to make it another successful event for our parish.

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joseph Hannappel
