St. James the Apostle Parish |All are welcome
We are committed to a living faith proclaimed by Jesus Christ our Lord and clearly set forth in our Mission Statement.
We, the Roman Catholic parish family of Saint James, because of our faith in Jesus Christ and our love for one another, commit ourselves to serve God and each other by:
- Inviting people to worship with us
- Reaching out to the less fortunate
- Educating ourselves and others in the Catholic Christian faith
- Recognizing the gifts and talents of everyone
- Respecting all individuals
- Committing ourselves to implement this vision of faith
This mission statement is what we are all about here at Saint James the Apostle Parish. As we live the faith in our everyday lives, at school or the workplace, in our home or away from home, we are defined by this statement and directed by it. We know this place as a safe dwelling. We care for one another as any family would, but we have outreach in Christ's love for others outside of our family or families. That makes us potent partners with Christ in spreading the good news of His love.
As a parish family we have been blessed in so many ways, with talents and energies and gifts of individual parish members shared by all. Saint James the Apostle Parish is known for its openness and welcome. The Holy Spirit dwells within us as a community of faith. We must continue to respond to that Spirit in every way.
