Welcome to St. James Parish

Dear Friend- Zanmi m’ -Amigo Mio

Welcome to Saint James! It is with great pride and joy that I welcome you and your family to this wonderful faith community. St James is a warm and welcoming parish of over 1200 active families from a diversity of cultures and ethnic backgrounds. I firmly believe that the best way for you to see firsthand the true vibrancy of our parish is to join us for one of our liturgies. Every Mass is unique and each one will leave you wanting more.

Connecting through this website is another great place to jump-start or deepen your St. James’ experience. Our mission statement at St. James is “Doers of the Word, Living for the Lord.” We strive to live out these words of our patron (James 1:22) through participation in the sacraments and numerous ministries and activities covering all aspects of parish life, faith formation, spirituality and human concerns.

Together, we seek to create growth opportunity for everyone, young and old, to share their passion for Christ in an environment that will also deepen their personal relationship with our Lord. So, don’t be shy—let your mouse do the walking. Along with this interactive website, St. James can be found on social media! Follow us and keep informed on parish news and stay connected to St. James using your smartphone or tablet with the St. James Catholic Church mobile app.

The Saint James’ mission statement sends us forth from the celebration of the Eucharist to put into practice the Gospel of Jesus-Christ as the most effective witness to faith, hope and love. I invite you to embrace our mission.
Attend one of our beautiful liturgies, join one of our ministries or take part in a parish event…bring the family, invite a friend—all are welcome!

I look forward to meeting you here as we encounter Christ every day in our liturgies or parish events. Please pray for me as I will for you and your family.

Your Servant in Christ,
Msgr. Chanel Jeanty
