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.

The participation in last week’s Oktoberfest made it a successful fun and fund raising event in our parish. I want to thank all who led the committed committees of disciples, along with our rookie chairpersons Camil Saadi and Keven Hesse, whose sacrificial service made it a great day! It appears we fed over 1,000 people again this year. Carl & Diane Kucera, owners of Country Catering, prepared all of the turkey for us this year and donations from our Oktoberfest letter went toward the cost of buying the turkeys. A listing of raffle winners and a note of gratitude are in the bulletin, and more details will be published in the future. I am grateful for all who made donations to make Oktoberfest a financial benefit to our parish.

This weekend, Mike Kathol from our finance committee will present the July 1, 2017 – July 1, 2018 end of year report and the budget for our current fiscal year. The report will be in the gathering space. If you have questions you can talk to Fr. Joe or one of our finance committee members: Mike Kathol, Steve Rogers, John Lakey, Gary Steffensmeier, Ed Berglund, Matt Sommers, Jodi Smith, Brian Groskreutz, and staff members Ron Dobesh, Lisa Sokolowski.

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joseph Hannappel
