Adopt a Garden or Help With Weeding

With Gratitude and Thanksgiving we honor our Ministers of God’s Natural Beauty!!  To Ron and Barb, Bob, Dennis and Bonnie who water and tend our Outside Pots on the patio and gardens at the main entrance and music side entrance.

To the Green Plant Care Team, Judy, Dina, Pam, Terri, Mary Kay, Pattie and Frank, who water, feed, clip, replant and do all the necessary things with our indoor plants.

To Frank, and now another Frank who care for, fertilize and weed the many gardens around our parking lot.  We need helping hands for our Marine Veteran Franks who can be seen most every morning in some garden or other around the grounds.

Won’t you please join this outside group?  Perhaps “adopt a garden”!!  Call and ask for Dave at the Parish Office at 250-2660.  And a very huge THANK YOU to these Ministers of God’s Natural Beauty!

New Mask Guidelines at St. James

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 a “mask optional” section.  Look for signage in the gathering space and pews.
  • Alternate row seating will continue in all sections.  We may eliminate distancing rows as capacity increases.
  • Once on the altar, ministers may remove their masks.  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.
