This Sunday is the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Fr. Garry Richmeier shares his reflection. Please see attached New Year 2023 Bulletin.

It is with much sadness that I inform you of the passing of parishioner Patrick Behrens. Fr. Garry anointed him last Tuesday and he passed away yesterday.

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. Here is the link to the livestream: Facebook Page of St. James Midtown KC. Recording of the livestreamed Mass can be accessed at

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. Masks in St. James are strongly recommended as flu and Covid-19 cases have risen.
