This Sunday is the Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time. Joan D’Merchant shares her reflection. Please see attached 31st Sunday in OT Bulletin.

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 recommended.


  • After Mass this Sunday, we will have the 5th Sunday Celebration in the Marian Hall. Let’s have a meal together as a family.
  • The St. James Youth Group invites the youth and children of St. James to come to Mass this Sunday in Halloween costumes. Treat bags will be distributed at the 5thSunday Celebration in the Marian Hall.

Have a safe weekend!
