Our Mission

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.

Fishing with St. James

January 24, 2021

Last Sunday, our gospel was from John chapter one. Jesus’ first words in John’s gospel are “What are you looking for?” and“Come, and you will see.” We too are called to answer this question and accept the invitation.
 

This Sunday, we have the Jesus’ first words in Mark’s Gospel; “After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: ‘This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.’” After this he calls his first disciples by saying “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” All of us are called to live out his mission and accept his invitation.
 

The Dogmatic Constitution on the Church (Lumen Gentium—Light of the Nations) from the Roman Catholic Council, Vatican II, talks about a universal call to holiness and mission: "Accordingly, all Christians, in the conditions, duties and circumstances of their lives and through all these, will grow constantly in holiness if they receive all things with faith from the hand of the heavenly Father and cooperate with the divine will, making manifest in their ordinary work the love with which God has loved the world" (§41; Vatican Council II)
 

I am grateful to be fishing here at St. James and working with God’s holy women and men in our parish.

I AM Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel


                                       

                                 Pescando con St. James

El domingo pasado, el evangelio fue de Juan capitulo uno. Las primeras palabras de Jesús en el evangelio de Juan son ““¿Qué buscan?” y “Vengan a ver” Nosotros también somos llamados a contestar esta pregunta y aceptar esta invitación.
 

Este domingo, tenemos la las primeras palabras de Jesús en el evangelio de Marcos; “Después de que arrestaron a Juan el Bautista, Jesús se fue a Galilea para predicar el Evangelio de Dios y decía: ‘Se ha cumplido el tiempo y el Reino de Dios ya está cerca. Arre-piéntanse y crean en el Evangelio’”. Después de esto les llama a sus discípulos diciendo “Síganme y haré de ustedes pescadores de hombres” Todos estamos llamados a vivir su misión y aceptar su invitación.
 

Constitución Dogmática Sobre La Iglesia (Lumen Gentium – Luz de los Pueblos) Concilio Vaticano II, habla sobre el llamado universal a la santidad y misiones: " Por tanto, todos los fieles cristianos, en las condiciones, ocupaciones o circunstancias de su vida, y a través de todo eso, se santificarán más cada día si lo aceptan todo con fe de la mano del Padre celestial y colaboran con la voluntad divina, haciendo manifiesta a todos, incluso en su dedicación a las tareas temporales, la caridad con que Dios amó al mundo." (§41; Vatican Council II)
 

Estoy agradecido de estar pescando aquí en St. James y trabajando con las mujeres y hombres santos de Dios en nuestra parroquia.

Soy José tu harmano. El p. José Hannappel
