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.

Fishing with St. James

view all posts

June 16, 2019

Dear Parishioners,

Fr. Joe has passed on the fishing pole to me for the next two
weeks for his weekly “Fishing with St. James” bulletin column.
This gives me a chance to hone my fishing skills. Yea!

How appropriate that we set aside a day each year to honor our
mothers, and now, this weekend, a day to honor our fathers.
Not one of us would have life – not one of us would be here
without our parents. Today we simply take time to be grateful
for the good things and rich blessings that are ours because of
our fathers.

Today’s feast of the Holy Trinity isn’t celebrated as a kind of
theological problem to be solved (1+1+1=1). Rather, it is a day
to be aware that God wants to include each of us in the divine
life that is manifest in the wonder of God our creator, Jesus our
redeemer and the Holy Spirit, our sanctifier. It is difficult to
explain how we share in this mystery, but the past several
weeks at liturgy – in the readings taken from St. John’s gospel
– Jesus has spoken emphatically about the union between him
and the Father and of how we also are one with him and the
Father. This is God’s gift to us, not something we make happen.
The trinity is not a mathematics problem to be solved, but a
mystery for us to bask in and enjoy.

Blessings + Peace, Fr. Art
