Every year the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops observes National Migration Week, January 7-13, 2018. You will find the theme and information in the Catholic Social Teaching section of this bulletin. Unfortunately, in our contemporary culture, we often fail to encounter migrants as persons, and instead look at them as unknown others, if we even notice them at all. Please take the opportunity to engage migrants in a respectful way as community members, neighbors, and...  continue reading

Today’s gospel story relates only one of the “Epiphanies,” revelations of the Christ to the world. “Three mysteries mark this holy day: today the star leads the Magi to the infant Christ; today water is changed into wine for the wedding feast; today Christ wills to be baptized by John in the river Jordan to bring us salvation.” (from Evening Prayer II Gospel Antiphon). Most of the Christian world celebrates the Epiphany on the sixth of January. In our...  continue reading

Feliz Navidad – Merry Christmas! May presence of joy, light, goodness and love we celebrate incarnate in our midst during this Holy Christmas Season be your greatest present through these days and always. May you know and feel the truth of "God-with-us" especially in difficult circumstances, loneliness, loss or struggle. I want to offer my appreciation to all the musicians, liturgical environment preparers, ministers, cleaners, snow and ice removers and everyone who continues to...  continue reading

December 12th is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe celebrating Mary’s appearance to St. Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531. On October 12, 1945, Pope Pius XII, decreed Our Lady of Guadalupe to be "Patroness of all the Americas." The image of Mary we have in the sanctuary by the tabernacle is the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe. Our Lady instructed Juan Diego to gather roses in December and when he opened his tilma (outer garment) to show the roses to the Bishop an image of Our Lady was on...  continue reading

St. James “Art Acquisition Team” was formed after the completion of our renovation in April of 2016, to plan for  liturgical and devotional art in the church. We recently received a substantial gift to purchase new Stations of the Cross for the back walls of the church. The team reached a consensus to order fifteen bronze stations for the back walls of the church. The fifteenth station depicts the resurrection of Jesus. We hope they will arrive this Lent 2018. We recently...  continue reading

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!!!
