Be doers of the word and not hearers only. - Letter of James 1:22

St. James Roman Catholic Church

He is Risen! He is Truly Risen!

The clergy and pastoral staff of St. James wish you a Blessed Easter Season

Coming Soon to St. James!

Please plan to join us for a four-week-long Scripture Study Class designed for adults interested in learning more about how the various Gospels were constructed and what the sacred authors were trying to say. 

Fr. Bob will lead us in taking a look at the construction of the various Gospels and then focus more specifically on the Gospel of Luke, whose Gospels we proclaim during this Cycle C of our lectionary readings.

The classes will take place on Tuesday evenings (May 31, June 7,14 and 21) 7:30-9pm in Rooms 101/102 of the Parish Center. All are welcome!

"Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and broke open the Scriptures to us." Luke 24:32

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.

Give On-Line Securely

During this time of uncertainty surrounding the COVID19 virus, many of us will choose to remain at home and not venture out to church or other places where large groups of people may gather. While respecting that choice, please remember that our parish still needs our financial support in order to meet regular operating expenses such as electric bills, heating/cooling, water and payroll. If you have not already signed up for electronic giving via Faith Direct, please consider doing so now.
