This Sunday is the Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Fr. Garry Richmeier shares his reflection. Please see attached 14th Sunday in OT Bulletin.

Next Sunday, July 10, Fr. Don Farnan will be celebrating Mass with us. You are invited to come celebrate Hospitality Sunday with us in welcoming our new pastor. See attached flyer.

On a sad note, I would like to inform St. James that Vic Poitier has passed away. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. Schedule of funeral services is pending.

We continue to livestream our 10:00 AM Sunday Mass, reaching out to parishioners and friends who are in hospitals, in nursing homes or housebound. In addition, the availability of the livestream Sunday Mass is for those who may be pregnant, parents of unvaccinated children, immunocompromised and unvaccinated individuals. May we invite those who can attend the Sunday Mass in-person to join us in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist in St. James KC. As new cases of Covid infections rise, masks in St. James are strongly recommended.
