Mission Statement


St. James the Apostle Parish is called by God to be a Christ Centered Loving family under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel and serving Christ in our Catholic church and in our community.


Parish News!

The entire parish of St James wishes to say THANK YOU to our youth director Mrs. Lorraine Parsons as she gives up the position to deal with health issues. Mrs. Parsons has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Please keep her in your prayers. Mrs. Parsons will stay on to volunteer with Confirmation and Altar Servers. We thank Mrs. Lorraine Parsons for the incredible job she has done at both St Vincent de Paul Church and St James the Apostle, but now she wants to focus on beating this. Mrs. Parsons has been working for the Diocese for a decade, and our youth here and St Vincent Love her with all their hearts!

Please welcome our new Youth Director Ms. Cierra Holt!
