Parish Assessments from the Be My Witness Group

The Be My Witness parish leadership team is conducting these assessments to determine how we can improve our church community in the five areas of Sunday worship, welcoming all, sense of belonging, witnessing to others and becoming missionary disciples.  If you are asked to fill out one of these assessment we pray that you will be helpful and we thank you in advance for your time and prayers.  Please use the following link to get to the surveys.  Thank you in advance!

SCRIP Gift Card Program

To stream-line the sales process, the SCRIP program will be changing in January 2018.

• Rather than selling gift cards in the gathering space after Mass, SCRIP will now be available to purchase by completing a paper order form and placing it (along with your payment) in the collection plate during Mass or by taking it to the church office.
• Orders will be due by the 15th of each month, and gift cards will be available to pick up from the church office on or after the 22nd of each month.
• Blank order forms can be picked up in the Gathering Space, on a table outside the office.

You can use SCRIP gift cards for gift giving or for your usual day-to-day expenses such as groceries or gas. Each time you purchase SCRIP gift cards, a percentage of your purchase goes directly to St. James. Thank you for your support!!!

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

Our very important Campaign Events are continuing this week. I hope you have received your mailings and have made your RSVP for one of the fun and informative upcoming events. They are also listed each week in the bulletin next to this column.  The events team is working very hard so every parishioner can attend at a variety of times with different themes. Your participation will help the campaign be successful and I hope to see all of you at one or more of them!

At St. James Parish, along with many other Christian communities, we began the communal journey of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Every Ash Wednesday, we read from the sixth chapter of Matthew, verses 1-18, hearing the words of Jesus, "when you give alms…, when you pray…., when you fast…." Lent is a journey of making and renewing baptismal promises, repenting from sin and living the good news we have received. We are reminded that each one of us is a beloved child of God in the midst of God’s beloved children.

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joseph Hannappel
