St. James was one of Jesus’s first disciples called, and he was a member of Christ’s innermost circle. In many books of the Bible, James asks questions that spark some of our greatest lessons in the Gospels. St. James was a close friend of Our Lord. King Herod Agrippa I martyred James because of his belief in Jesus. His feast day is July 25th.

In order to be disciples, the parishioners of St. James the Apostle strive to know God, to love Him, and to serve Him through His people. (Deut 10:12-13). Knowing God comes through participation in the Sacraments, study of the Word, prayer, and reflection. Loving God through the respect, compassion, forgiveness and love we share with those whom enter our lives. We strive to serve Him through the service we provide to the people of our Parish and others in need.
