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

June 20, 2021

This Sunday is Father’s Day. May all men who are fatherly guides to others, bring God’s love and blessing to everyone entrusted to their care. Here is an abbreviated Litany to St. Joseph that I encourage you to pray for all men in fatherly roles.

After each phrase at the comma say: Pray for us. Good St. Joseph, Husband of the blessed Virgin Mary, Foster father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Protector of the Mother of God, Faithful Spouse, Example to parents, Pattern of patience, Lover of poverty, Comfort of the troubled, Protector of the Church, Good worker, Good and gentle man, Man of justice, Teacher of virtue, Model of kindness, Loving father,

After each phrase at the comma say: St. Joseph, Pray for them. For all fathers, For all families, For all who are afraid, For all tempted to despair, For all tempted by evil, For refugees and orphans, For those condemned to die, For those who are terminally ill, For those at the hour of their death, For those who wait for death, For the old and the alone, For all who work for justice, For all who work for life,

Let us pray: Almighty God, in Your infinite wisdom and love, You chose Joseph to be the husband of Mary, the mother of your Son. As we enjoy his protection on earth, may we have the help of his prayers in heaven. We ask you this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

I AM Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel

Pescando con Santiago

Este domingo es el Dia del Padre. Que todos los hombres que sean guías paternas para otros, traigan el amor de Dios y bendiciones a todos los que están encomendados a su cuidado. Aquí esta una abreviación de la Letanía de San Jose y los animo a que oren por todos los hombres en roles paternos.

Después de cada frase en la coma digan: Ruega por nosotros. Buen San Jose, Esposo de la Madre de Dios, Padre nutricio del hijo de Dios, Protector de la Madre de Dios, Fiel Esposo, Ejemplo a los padres, Espejo de paciencia, Amante de la pobreza, Consuelo de los desgraciados, Protector de la Santa Iglesia, Modelo de trabajadores, Hombre bueno y gentil, Hombre de Justicia, Maestro de Virtud, Modelo de la amabilidad, Padre amoroso,

Después de cada frase en la coma digan: San Jose, Ruega por ellos. Para todos los padres, Para todas las familias, Para todos los que tienen miedo, Para todos los tentados en la desesperación, Para todos los tentados por lo malvado, Para todos los refugiados y huérfanos, para todos los condenados a muerte, Para todos los enfermos terminales, Para los que están en la hora de su muerte, Por los que esperan la muerte, Por los ancianos y viejos, Por todos los que trabajan para la justicia, Por todos que trabajan para la vida,

Oremos: Oh Dios, que, en tu inefable providencia, te dignaste elegir a San José por Esposo de tu Santísima Madre: concédenos, te rogamos, que merezcamos tener por intercesor en el cielo al que veneramos como protector en la tierra. Tú que vives y reinas por los siglos de los siglos. Amen.

Yo Soy, José tu hermano Pd. Joe Hannappel
