Welcome to St. James

After more than 150 years in the Kearney community, St. James parish has a rich history as a community of Catholic worship and an established legacy of service to the people of the Kearney area.

St. James parish was established in the 1860s to be a sign of the presence of the Kingdom of God, to spread the Good News of the Gospel and to minister and serve others. As Catholics we believe in Jesus' dying and rising and in our call to celebrate the Sacraments and proclaim the Gospel. Right now, we are in the midst of an exciting time in the development of our parish as we have vacated our church structure for a year-long renovation project. This time of sacrifice and growth, we pray, will ultimately strengthen our community and our faith as we return to a renewed place to gather and worship.

We welcome our Catholic brothers and sisters, our visitors from other denominations, people new to Kearney or just stopping through, to pray and celebrate the Sacraments with us. Join us at our various gathering points in Kearney. You will be welcomed and embraced as we are called to celebrate, with you, and ask you to join us in being a sign of the presence of God.

This week Fr. Art and I will be at the annual diocesan priests’
retreat in Schuyler, Nebraska. Please pray for us and the other
priests of our diocese, who will gather in prayer with Bishop
Hanefeldt. I will leave on Monday afternoon after Jeanne
Ackerman’s funeral. Jeanne was a lifelong parishioner who
played the organ, piano, and keyboard from the time she was
thirteen until last year at the age of ninety-one. She had a passion
for serving the church by sharing her musical gifts at liturgies
and other events. I am grateful for her gracious service and
I will miss her. Please note in the bulletin, that this week we
will only have the funeral Mass on Monday at 10:30 a.m. and a
Mass at 8:15 a.m. on Thursday. Fr. Paul Colling and Fr. Neal
Hock will both be in Kearney for emergencies where a priest is
needed. The Newman Center and Prince of Peace will have
daily Masses.

Thank you for your support of the Hurricane Harvey Relief
Collection.
Because of your generosity we will be sending
$7,082 to support the efforts of Catholic Charities USA for pastoral
and reconstruction aid to the people effected by the hurricane.
You can continue to give through our parish for this or
disasters caused by nature or humans. The Diocese Facebook
page, “Catholic Diocese of Grand Island,” and website,                       http://www.gidiocese.org, have also been updated with links to Catholic
Charities.

There are copies in the Gathering Space this week of the Nebraska
Bishop’s Joint Statement on Deferred Action for Childhood
Arrivals (DACA) Youth.

Hay copias en el espacio de reunión en español de la
Declaración Conjunta de los Obispos sobre la Acción Diferida
para los Legados en la Infancia.
“Ellos quieren expresar su
solidaridad con DACA y los jóvenes también llamados
"soñadores" Por último, a los jóvenes de DACA aquí en
Nebraska; por favor, sepan que la Iglesia Católica esta con
ustedes. Como pastores, es nuestro deseo acompañarlos en las
angustias y los medios que enfrentan a través de esta jornada.
Gracias por las contribuciones diarias que hacen a sus familias,
a las comunidades locales y parroquias y a nuestro país.”

Gracias por todos, “Yo soy José, su hermano.” Padre José Hannappel
