Spiritual Communion Prayer

The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. 

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you. 
Never permit me to be separated from you.
Amen.

Creo, Jesús mío, que estás real y verdaderamente en el cielo y en el Santísimo Sacramento del Altar.
Os amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo vivamente recibirte dentro de mi alma, pero no pudiendo hacerlo ahora sacramentalmente, venid al menos espiritualmente a mi corazón.
Y como si ya os hubiese recibido, os abrazo y me uno del todo a Ti. Señor, no permitas que jamás me aparte de Ti.
Amén.

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. We are in the midst of an exciting time in the development of our parish as we have completed our renovation project and are adding new ministries. 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. 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.

                 To the Domestic Churches of St. James

Bishop Hanefeldt has dispensed all in the diocese from the
obligation to attend weekend Mass. The Bishop will inform us
this coming week if we can re-open for public Masses the
weekend of May 30-31.

We will continue recording the Mass and putting it on our
website, Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Gathering in a public space, including our church, still
poses a risk of acquiring or transmitting the virus. Anyone
who feels safer staying at home, should do so.
Please, stay at
home if you are sick, have a fever, are in a health-risk category,
care for someone who is sick or vulnerable or has been exposed
to COVID-19.

If we are given permission to re-open for Mass next weekend:
May 30-31, Weekend Mass times:
Saturday: 5 p.m. Sunday: 8:30 a.m., *11:00 a.m.,
*1:30 p.m. (Spanish)
June 1-5, Weekday Mass times:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday: 12 noon,
Thursday: 5:30 p.m.


Because we follow the command to love ourselves and our
neighbor, we have these expectations of those who attend Mass
at St. James:
 OBSERVE 6 FEET PHYSICAL DISTANCING
 SANITIZE HANDS BEFORE ENTERING
THE CHURCH
 WEAR A MASK

A cautious estimate for adequate physical distancing is approximately
150 people at each Mass. Since the obligation to
attend weekend Mass is dispensed, it will be helpful if those
who attend Mass choose a time throughout the week. Possibly
alternating every other week between a weekday or a weekend
liturgy.

Arrive fifteen minutes early and ushers will guide you to a
seat. If you come as a family or couple, you may sit together.
Communion will be distributed in the hand, not in the mouth.

Please leave your church contribution in the baskets in the
Gathering Space. You may also donate through the mail, electronic
funds transfer, by bill pay or on St. James website. You
may also bring non-perishable food items for the Jubilee Center.

I really miss seeing all of you, but I want us to gather safely
with the hope of being together for a long time. Please be patient,
err on the side of caution and always act out of love for
one another! Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of your faithful!

I AM Joseph your brother! Fr. Joseph Hannappel

*The 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Sunday Mass time changes are
to allow time to clean between Masses.
