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!!!

Welcome to St. James

After more than 150 years in the Kearney community, St. James parish has a rich history as a community of Catholic worship and an established legacy of service to the people of the Kearney area.

St. James parish was established in the 1860s 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. Right now, we are in the midst of an exciting time in the development of our parish as we have vacated our church structure for a year-long renovation project. This time of sacrifice and growth, we pray, will ultimately strengthen our community and our faith as we return to a renewed place to gather and worship.

We welcome our Catholic brothers and sisters, our visitors from other denominations, people new to Kearney or just stopping through, to pray and celebrate the Sacraments with us. Join us at our various gathering points in Kearney. You will be welcomed and embraced as we are called to celebrate, with you, and ask you to join us in being a sign of the presence of God.

Stewardship forms are in the church today on the Feast of Pentecost to encourage everyone to discern how the Holy Spirit is inviting them to greater participation and generosity in our parish and community. As disciples of Christ, we are called to share the gifts God has given us to benefit others. Our “need to give” is the first priority and then we are challenged to look for needs within the community where we can offer our gifts and talents. Everyone is invited to make a commitment during Mass. If you are not at Mass this weekend or if you need more time to pray about this, the stewardship forms will be available in the Gathering Space. We have areas of liturgical ministry and religious education that are in definite need of your generosity and commitment.

Many parishioners have responded generously to our capital campaign. You will find updated campaign information in the bulletin. I hope and pray that more will join in this critical endeavor in the financial aspect of our stewardship.

Generous gifts were received for the new Stations of the Cross and new sanctuary candle stands.  These designated gifts, monetary and in time and labor, are separate from the new capital campaign. They were given anonymously, so on behalf of the parish I want to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the gracious donors!

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel
