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.

This week, National Catholic Schools Week, is celebrated in
dioceses throughout the country. This year's theme,
"Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.," focuses on
the important spiritual, academic and societal contributions
provided by a Catholic education.

Bishop Hanefeldt will be here for the Thursday, January
30th, 8:15 Mass at Prince of Peace. Everyone is welcome to
attend. Catholic schools are an important component of our
mission and message at Prince of Peace and St. James Parishes
and in our diocese. I appreciate the support of our Bishops,
the diocese and our parishes for this important service
provided as a blessing to the whole church.

I am grateful for the administration, staff, faculty, students,
parishioners, families and supporters who sacrifice so that
KCHS continues to thrive. I encourage you to consider enrolling
your 5th-11th grade children in Kearney Catholic for
the 2020-2021 school year. If you are interested, come to the
New Student Information Day this Sunday (more information
in this bulletin) or if you have questions please call
the school office or Fr. Joe.

Terry Torson, the principal Kearney Catholic for 33 years,
announced his retirement at the KCHS school board meeting
last week. Our parishes, the students and supporters of the
school and I will greatly miss his leadership and generosity.

I am Joseph, your brother. Fr. Joe Hannappel
