Whenever a family member is in any of the area hospitals for more than three days and has not been visited by a staff member of St. James, please be sure to call the office, 729-6147, and alert the staff that the family member is a patient, so that someone may visit.

Getting Married??

If you plan on getting married, please call Mary Anne in the Parish Office. Monday-Thursday 9am-3:30pm as soon as possible. Diocesan regulation requires 6 months notification as well as Pre-Cana instruction. With paper-work, planning and busy schedules to anticipate, twelve months ahead is realistic. With a high number of weddings in concentrated times of the year, it is very important that we are able to have available dates for parishioners.


St. James Food Pantry

The pantry will typically accept most items, but in particular the usual items we need are:

Any kind of juice, peanut butter, JELLY, any kind of canned fruit, canned vegetables (especially corn) pasta, spaghetti sauce, rice, cereals, oatmeal, crackers/cookies, canned soup, canned or boxed potatoes, and canned meals like Chef Boyardee (ravioli, beefaroni, etc.) Personal items and Toilet Tissue are also accepted as well. Brown Paper Bags are also needed.

Many families in our neighborhood cannot afford to feed their children three meals a day. This includes working families, and grandparents who are caring for children who are disabled. Therefore, we are attempting to supplement the pantry to accommodate this increased need. There are bags located at the entrances of the church for those who are able to assist at this time. Every donation helps, thank you for your tremendous generosity!

A reminder when bringing food for the pantry: leave donations in the side entrance of the church, please do not leave food outside of the pantry or rectory.

Vocation Awareness

Prayer for Vocations

Loving God, you sent your Spirit on the apostles to continue the mission of your Son, Jesus. We pray that you will now send your Spirit on our bishops, priests, deacons, sisters and brothers, filling them with zeal to evangelize your people.
We pray for all that are presently discerning your call, those in vocational formations and those preparing them.
Mary our Mother and patroness intercede for us that our pastoral need may be fulfilled through Him who is Lord for ever and ever.

As always, our weekly bulletin is online for more announcements, schedule concerns and more!
