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.

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.

March 29, 2020

Uncertain times bring stress to everyone in different ways. At this time, along with attending to our spiritual life, it is important to consider the health and safety of everyone. Please follow the preventative directives that we are given by our state and national authorities.

Even though this a time for physical distancing, it can also be an opportunity for spiritual communion and social connection through electronic means. Please continue to pray for others and reach out by phone and other means to people who may feel isolated. Especially remember those who will have to continue to work and risk their own health and well-being to offer care for those in need.

This is a critical time for everyone around the world—especially for the most vulnerable. Please call the parish office if you have a need that the parish can respond to or we will direct you to help that is available.

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times. God is with us, and I believe God’s grace will guide us as we face these challenges together. We will keep you in our prayers and ask for your prayers as well.

May God continue to bless you and guide you to be careful and wise in taking care of yourself and helping others in need.

The Peace of the Lord be with you always,
Fr. Joe Hannappel
