Fishing with St. James

May 19, 2019

We are in the fourth of six weeks where we will hear this succession of readings: the Acts of the Apostles, a Psalm, the book of Revelation and the Gospel of John, in the Liturgy of the Word. It is a positive spiritual practice to find these passages (you will find them listed on the other page of this bulletin) and read them before you come to Mass on Sunday. This Sunday we will here from the Gospel of John 13:33a, 34-35, “My children, I will be with you only a little while longer....  continue reading

Fr. Art Faesser announced last weekend that he is retiring on June 30, 2019. I appreciate the ministry and service he has offered to the parish for the last five years. Because he is ten years older than me, I often refer to him as my “adult supervisor.” I appreciate his wisdom and am thankful that he has been “a companion on the journey” in Gospel ministry with me. Fr. Art will continue to live at the parish house next to me and offer help and support when he is in...  continue reading

Dear parishioners of St. James- Since this is the weekend that clergy changes are announced, I wanted to share my status with you. As many of you have already surmised, I do plan to retire as of July 1, 2019. Having turned 70 on April first, this seems to be a good time to make this transition. These past five years at St. James have been rich and fulfilling. My deep gratitude to the staff and to all of you for being at the center of this marvelous portion of my journey. St. James...  continue reading

Today we complete our “Triduum” the annual retreat where we are immersed into a communal participation in Christ's Paschal Mystery. By embracing this journey into death and resurrection we are continually called into conversion. We are challenged to gracious hospitality and a genuine desire to share the community’s joy with everyone who joins us at worship. St. John Chrysostom (347-407) wrote this in an Easter Homily: “Come you all: Enter into the joy of our Lord....  continue reading

I want to thank everyone who contributed a total of $9,674 to the special collection for area flood assistance.

I am always appreciative of our parish’s response to special needs and our special collections. On Monday, April 8th at 4:00 p.m., Fr. Art and I will be at St....  continue reading
