Ministry Schedule

Liturgical &
Homebound Ministers

Whether you are proclaiming God's word or offering the Body and Blood of our Lord, you are participating in Liturgy in a precious and holy way. This is a privilege we have to contribute to the prayerful experience of worship of those to whom we minister.

At all times, remember that you are to be an active participant in the liturgy. Please participate joyfully in song and prayer. If you know in advance that you cannot be at Mass, please find a substitute. When you don't feel well or have a cold, please also find a substitute.

Please dress up for your ministry, wear your Sunday best! Appropriate attire and external appearance contribute to the sense of dignity and reverence. The manner of your dress should not call attention to you. Wear modest, loose fitting clothing. Please do not wear: shorts, jeans, T-shirts, tops that don't cover your shoulders, sweat shirts or any shirt with a logo or advertisement.

Thank you so much for your service to our Parish. It is truly appreciated!

If you would like to help with any of these ministries, please call the following parishioners to schedule a time for training. You can also find more information on the Liturgical Ministries and Pastoral Ministries pages.

You can also download and complete the Time and Talent form and return it to the parish office. If you are uncertain about the responsibilities of a particular ministry, please call the parish office at 234-5536 for more information.

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!!!
