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.

Please note the special Mass times for Saturday and Sunday the 4th Sunday of Advent. There will be two masses Saturday night and ONLY ONE MASS SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:00 AM!

Everyone is welcome to the bilingual (Spanish and English) Christmas Mass on Saturday, December 24th at 9:00 p.m. You are invited to bring the baby Jesus from your nativity crèche for a special blessing at the mass.

I want to thank the Hispanic Leadership Group and everyone involved in the Our Lady of Guadalupe preparations, celebration of Eucharist, music, traditional dancing by parishioners and the feast of food. The day was a great witness to our community spirit and to "Our Lady, the patroness of the Americas" who appeared in Mexico in 1531.

Se invita a toda la comunidad a la Misa bilingüe el día Sábado 24 de Diciembre a las 9:00 p.m. No olviden traer a su niño Jesús para su bendición especial en noche buena.

Quiero agradecer al grupo de líderes hispanos y todos los involucrados en los preparativos de nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, la celebración Eucarística, la música, los bailes tradicionales por feligreses y la fiesta de alimentos. El día fue un gran testimonio a nuestro espíritu de comunidad y "Nuestra Señora, emperatriz de las Américas" que apareció en México en 1531.

"Maranatha -Come Lord Jesus!" Fr. Joe Hannappel
