Our Parish

Our commitment to diversity and inclusivity compels our hearts and doors to open wide to all who enter them. Those same hearts and doors open outward to our own sacred corner of the city and beyond because we believe that the Gospel calls us to walk tirelessly for peace, social justice and in service to others.

Our Mission

We, the people of the St. James community in faith, commit ourselves to building the Reign of God for all people, serving especially our neighbors in Midtown, Kansas City.

Our Vision

St. James Parish will be a vital Catholic Christian presence at the crossroads of Kansas City, meeting the spiritual needs of our members and impacting both the midtown neighborhood and the larger community.  We will be a growing and diverse community where worship and sacramental life are joyful and vibrant; where people are empowered to live the Gospel; and where, especially, the needs of the poor and disenfranchised are lovingly and humbly addressed.
