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. We are in the midst of an exciting time in the development of our parish as we have completed our renovation project and are adding new ministries. 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. 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 Kearney Catholic

I am excited to have accepted the Kearney Catholic Jr./Sr. High School Principal position for the 2020-2021 school year.

It is a blessing to partner with the families of St. James and Prince of Peace parishes as we strive to prepare students who are strong in their faith, who are prepared academically, and who are community ready.

We are fortunate that, under Mr. Torson’s leadership, the school is thriving. While enrollment at Catholic schools in the area and across the nation is on the decline, KCHS enrollment has grown and been sustained near its record high. Moving forward, we have a great opportunity to capitalize on our current foundation and success. My focus will be aligned with our mission statement. This will consist of examining and expanding upon, when appropriate, the areas of academic offerings and rigor, faith formation of our students, and opportunities to engage students in service to the Church and community.

I look forward to serving as the KCHS Principal. I am excited to work with the Catholic Community of Kearney as we take on challenges, embrace opportunities, and celebrate successes. Thank you for your support in shaping the lives of the young men and women that we are so fortunate to serve at Kearney Catholic.
