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 you will receive a mailing for St. James Annual Stewardship Renewal. Every parish household is invited to fill out the Stewardship Commitment Form and return it to Mass on March 30/31 or at any time. Please complete the form as a recommitment to your current ministries and/or to choose a new way to serve. We will collect these cards as part of the “Offerings of the Faithful” to express the sacrifice to God of our gifts of time, talent, and treasure. I trust you will join our effort to be a parish of “good and faithful stewards”— visibly committed to prayer, ministry to others, and ongoing financial support. God will bless you abundantly as your commitments reflect your life as a disciple of Jesus.

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel
