On Wednesday we go from 12:00 pm – 8:30 pm. Even if you can’t attend everyday or need to be picked up early on occasion, we can still make it work.

We’re Back! It seems hard to believe but it has been nearly three years since St. James conducted their last, unbelievably popular Thrift Sale. As we have done in the past, we will be asking members and friends of the parish to help in this very important activity – many hands will make the work easy for all!
Please remember to set aside your unused and unwanted items for this sale. We need and will accept almost everything. However, there are a few exceptions: NO computer equipment, TVs (except for flat screen), or large appliances. No magazines, cassette tapes, encyclopedias, baby cribs, car seats or mattresses. No exercising equipment, or skis. No entertainment centers and no stuffed animals. We welcome all Clean, gently used clothing, jewelry, antiques, craft items, records, CDs, DVDs, etc. and books are also accepted. We will start collecting these items on Wednesday, May 25th.
We are asking for donations for our Bake Sale. We need the baked goods to arrive no later than Wednesday June 8 before 3:00 p.m.
This year, we also need help in several areas: 1) The following departments still need someone to step up and lead the effort: Indoor Furniture, Bakery Sale, Food, and Publicity; 2) Able-bodied people needed for pickup and delivery of heavier items during collection dates and sale itself. Anyone interested in helping out in any of these areas, please call either the church at 262-251-3944 or Gene Neyhart at 262-255-2164.

Dear St. James Family,
With the new CDC guidelines and consideration of Archbishop Listecki, beginning this weekend we are making some changes. We must continue to treat everyone with dignity and respect. Therefore, with trust in the Holy Spirit, the following adjustments have been made:
- There will be a “mask required” section and “mask optional” sections. Look for signage in the gathering space and pews.
- Mask wearing requirements will be updated weekly.
- The Presider will wear a mask during the consecration.
- Eucharistic ministers (distributors & sanitizers) will wear masks during distribution.
- Communion to the homebound will be offered once again at Mass
- Sanitizing will continue
We wish to assure our people feel safe and comfortable. We ask you remain flexible as additional new directives emerge. Thank you for respecting our approach to ensure we continue to offer a safe and welcoming worship experience for all.

The Banquet has returned! The Community Banquet is a free meal offered twice a month, usually on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 5:30 in the Community Center at St. James Church. A nutritious hot meal is served and it provides time of fellowship to any who choose to attend. Volunteers from community churches take turns providing the meals, serving and cleaning up.
Volunteers are needed to help set up, make desserts, and clean up on a rotating basis. It’s easy and enjoyable! The time commitment is about 2 hours, dinner is included. Contact Denise Giovan for more information at 262-361-2757 (call or text) or email at email@example.com
