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.

A scholar of the law asks Jesus two questions in today’s Gospel. “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life? and “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus answers with the two great commandments of loving God and our neighbor and the story of “the man in the ditch.” Most people listen to the parable from the view of its usual title “The Good Samaritan.” However, the parable begins with “A man fell victim to robbers.” I invite you to pray with the parable and identify with the person in the ditch. What situations in our lives leave us feeling robbed, beaten down, stripped of our dignity and feeling half dead? What does it feel like when people you assume should help you, walk on by? How do you respond when someone that you would least expect to help comes to your aid in a generous and compassionate way?

The second reading from Colossians 1:15-20, comes from an early Christian hymn incorporated into the letter from liturgical use. “Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things he himself might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the blood of his cross through him, whether those on earth or those in heaven.”

May the fullness of Christ Jesus dwell within our community! Fr. Joe Hannappel
