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.

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 received a beautiful olivewood crucifix as a gift from Amir and Carolyn (Younes) Rizak. You will see it on the hallway wall near the sacristy.

“At the conclusion of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis announced the World Day of the Poor, the aim of which is to appeal to the consciences of believers, sensitizing them to the cries of the poor and the suffering. The motto chosen for this year is, “Love not in word but in deed”.

The voice of the poor calls out to all of the baptized, the many charitable Christian institutions, and civil society itself, asking everyone to put forward their best efforts in not only providing fraternal support for the destitute but also in valuing, on both the human and spiritual levels, the very dignity of the one who is poor.”

The following may be downloaded from the website of this Dicastery (www.pcpne.va): the text of the Message of the Holy Father for the World Day of the Poor, the logo and other useful information for the fruitful celebration of this Day.

Let us hear the cries of the poor and suffering; and love in word and in deed!

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel
