Our Mission

St. James parish was established in 1881 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.

From Bishop Hanefeldt: The National Eucharistic Revival

With the Solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ this Sunday, the National Eucharistic Revival gets underway. The Eucharistic Revival is meant to renew our appreciation for an intimate relationship with our Lord in Holy Communion. It is meant to foster an encounter with our Lord that brings us to bear witness to his before others. Over the course of the next 3 years, our plan for the revival focuses on EDUCATION, ENCOUNTER and ENGAGEMENT. I encourage people to visit the national website to learn more about this. Go to: For our own Diocesan website materials, go to:

May we all rise well and often!

I AM Joseph your brother

Del obispo Hanefeldt: El Avivamiento Eucarístico Nacional

Con la Solemnidad del Santísimo Cuerpo y Sangre de Cristo este domingo se pone en marcha el Avivamiento Eucarístico Nacional. El Avivamiento Eucarístico está destinado a renovar nuestro aprecio por una relación íntima con nuestro Señor en la Sagrada Comunión. Está destinado a propiciar un encuentro con nuestro Señor que nos lleve a dar testimonio del suyo ante los demás. En el transcurso de los próximos 3 años, nuestro plan para el avivamiento se enfoca en EDUCACIÓN, ENCUENTRO y COMPROMISO. Animo a la gente a visitar el sitio web nacional para aprender más sobre esto. Vaya a: Para nuestros propios materiales del sitio web diocesano, vaya a:

¡Que todos nos levantemos bien y con frecuencia!

YO SOY José tu hermano
