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.

In the coming week you will receive a mailing for St. James Annual Stewardship Renewal. Every parish household is invited to fill out the Stewardship Commitment Form and return it to Mass on March 30/31 or at any time. Please complete the form as a recommitment to your current ministries and/or to choose a new way to serve. We will collect these cards as part of the “Offerings of the Faithful” to express the sacrifice to God of our gifts of time, talent, and treasure. I trust you will join our effort to be a parish of “good and faithful stewards”— visibly committed to prayer, ministry to others, and ongoing financial support. God will bless you abundantly as your commitments reflect your life as a disciple of Jesus.

Here is a portion from a sermon on stewardship by Saint Gregory of Nazianzen, bishop, 4th-century Archbishop of Constantinople, and theologian. Let us show each other God’s generosity. “Is it not God who asks you now in your turn to show yourself generous above all other creatures and for the sake of all other creatures? Because we have received from him so many wonderful gifts, will we not be ashamed to refuse him this one thing only, our generosity? He has given abundantly to all the basic needs of life, not as a private possession, not restricted by law, not divided by boundaries, but as common to all, amply and in rich measure. His gifts are not deficient in any way, because he wanted to give equality of blessing to equality of worth, and to show the abundance of his generosity.”

A Stewardship Prayer: I pray that you give me the wisdom to guide me on this Faith Journey of Stewardship. Help me to understand that everything I have is a gift from you. Open up my heart and my mind so that I may use these marvelous gifts to give back to you here on earth. I pray Lord that you welcome me into your Kingdom at every stage of my life and that you are pleased with what I am doing with all your gifts. Amen.

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel
