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. Mask is OPTIONAL.

The results of the November 14 parish meeting are in the attached report. Thank you to all who participated. The parish representatives met yesterday to discuss the inputs from the deaneries and parishes involved. Due to Covid-19 and the new Omicron variant, a request to postpone the process was submitted to the Diocese. Unfortunately, the diocese nixed the request. Parish meetings will continue in mid-January through mid-March to help in determining what happens to the parishes in Deanery 1.
