This Mass is celebrated at 12:30 pm (please note new time) on the second Saturday of each month during the school year – January through May and September through December. 

The next Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, September 14 at 12:30 pm 

Please note: This Mass fulfills the Sunday Mass Obligation 

The remaining 2024 Special Needs Masses will be celebrated on the following second Saturdays at 12:30 pm:

This ministry strives to be inclusive in its approach, inviting those with special needs to fill liturgical roles 

such as proclaimer and musical accompaniment.

We are happy to tell you that through the kind generosity of St. James parishioner Jim Townsend and his partner Corey Arnold, of Bars and Tone Media Productions, we will continue to provide our weekend celebration of the Mass. Mass will be available on the website as well as the parish Facebook page and the Religious Education YouTube Channel through Thursday of the following week, and then available on the Weekly mass page. Our thanks also to the parishioners who responded to our call to be trained in providing this vital service to those unable to attend Mass in person, we are always looking for people wanting to learn the system and help out.

Weddings and Funerals are also able to be livestreamed should the family request it. Please see the front desk for more information.

Mission Statement

We, the Catholic community of the Three Village area, formed as the Body of Christ through the waters of Baptism, are a pilgrim community journeying toward the fullness of the Kingdom of God, guided by the Holy Spirit, nourished by the Eucharist and formed by the Gospel.

 We strive to respond to Jesus’ invitation: to be faithful and fruitful disciples; to be a Good Samaritan to (our) neighbor and enemy; stewards of and for God’s creation and living witnesses of Faith, Hope and Charity … so that in Jesus’ name, we may be a welcoming community, respectful of life in all its diversities.
