Holly Days – Silent Auction Items Needed

We are already beginning to think about thSee the source imageis year’s Holly Days event.  Holly Days is not only a fundraiser for our parish, but a time for us to come together as a community to enjoy fellowship.  The event has a Saturday supper, Sunday pancake breakfast, HUGE bake sale, Santa’s workshop for kids to shop for gifts for their family members, used book sale as well as a silent auction and the ever popular theme basket raffle.  If you have not been to Holly Days before, we invite you to put it on your calendar for this year – Dec. 3rd and 4th.

Our Silent Auction is in need of a few unique donations this year.  Do you have a special skill you can offer as an auction item (quilting, cooking, woodworking, photography, etc.)? Something you can make? Packers or Bucks tickets you can’t use? A cabin or condo up North or down South you can donate for a week or weekend? Something from your work to donate? Let’s talk!

Anointing of the Sick – October 8th & 9th

The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing appropriate not only for those in immediate danger of death but also for those suffering from chronic illness or preparing for surgery.  The individual receives from the Holy Spirit the graces of “strengthening, peace, and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with the condition of serious illness or frailty of old age.” CCC 1520

Anointing of the Sick will take place at St. James immediately following all Masses during the weekend of October 8th and 9th. Parishioners will be invited to remain in their seats following Mass if they wish to be anointed. If you are unable to attend on October 8th or 9th and wish to receive the sacrament, please contact the parish office at 262-251-3944.

New Mask Guidelines at St. James

Dear St. James Family,

See the source imageWith 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.
