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.

Kristi Svec has been reappointed to serve her second three year term
on the Kearney Catholic School Board. The other members of the
board from St. James are Paul Brungardt and Dr. Nita Unruh. Prince
of Peace members are Randy Buschkoetter, Tony Blake, and Bridget
Sharp.

The school board serves an important role as a policy making and
advisory board to the Kearney pastors and the bishop of Grand Island.
I appreciate the service of the school board, administration, faculty,
staff, and KCHS foundation to this important educational ministry
provided by St. James and Prince of Peace parishes in Kearney. I want
to commend the parents, parishioners and all others who support this
Catholic faith based education of our children.

The KCHS school building is currently in the process of additions
and renovations. This summer a new chapel is being added onto the
front of the building. The mural on the outside wall will be an inside
wall in the chapel. The entrance and foyer are being updated and expanded.
The administrative offices are also being expanded and remodeled.
We have received a $100,000 matching pledge for new gifts
to the campaign, so whatever gift you make will be doubled. I encourage
you to consider a gift to the Moving Forward in Faith Capital
Campaign. Information is available in the Gathering Space and you
can contact Cindi Richter at the Foundation office, 308-236-6903, or
Fr. Joe at the parish office.

I am Joseph your brother. Fr. Joe Hannappel
