We are pleased to announce a new men’s program called “That Man is You!” It tackles real issues facing real men. It looks at the leadership role that has been entrusted to men and addresses the temptations and struggles men face in a culture that attacks authentic manhood. Finally, it helps formulate a plan that allows men to overcome these obstacles. We will host every Friday from 5:45 am to 7:00 am at St. James Parish Community Center beginning September 17th. Join us at 5:45 and coffee, fruit and donuts followed by the “That Man Is You” presentation from 6 – 7 am. The video and discussion will combine the best scientific research with the teachings of the Church and wisdom of the saints. You will be on the road by 7 am to be to work on time! For more details, contact Jon Comeron: email@example.com

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!
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.
- We are recommending that upon entering and leaving church, you wear a mask until you get to your seat. Also going to and from Communion. Once you are seated you can remove your mask if you are in the Masks Optional section and choose to do so.
- 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.
