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 Parish Office to schedule a time for training. You can also find more information on the Liturgical Ministries and Pastoral Ministries pages.

If you are uncertain about the responsibilities of a particular Ministry or have other questions, please call the Parish Office at 234-5536, for more information.

Spiritual Communion Prayer
The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. 

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you. 
Never permit me to be separated from you.
Amen.

Parish Office

The parish offices will be closed, but phone calls, messages and emails will be checked periodically, but not as frequently as unusual.  We will respond to these the best that we can under the circumstances, as always be assured that you are important to our St. James Parish.
