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.

This past week, Sheila Gawrych began her position as our
part time secretary. Sheila’s responsibilities include office hospitality,
Faith Formation secretary, ministry scheduling and
other office work. Brenda Marshall has worked in this position
for the last two years and had worked here for five years previously.
I am grateful for Brenda’s excellent work for our parish,
it has been an honor to have her as part of our ministry
team. Please extend a warm welcome to Sheila as she joins our
staff at St. James.

The Feast of the Assumption of Mary is an especially important
feast for people of Vietnamese decent. I spoke at the
Holy Day Masses about the appearance of Mary at LaVang
Vietnam in 1798. Consider praying this prayer in honor of Our
Lady of LaVang. Mother Mary, Our Lady, present us to Jesus,
Our Saviour. Mother Mary, lead all souls to Jesus, Our Dear
Lord who alone redeems and saves. Dear Jesus, free us from
the bondage of sin and govern us with Your Love. Amen.


I am Joseph, your brother. Fr. Joe Hannappel
