Have You Been Away?


There’s an old saying that goes, “Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.” Maybe you have been away from the Church for a little while or quite some time, but somehow you now feel a tug at your heart calling you back home to the Catholic Church.

We at St. James are always ready to welcome you! Our merciful God is always ready to welcome you!

You may have felt a tug in your heart calling you to rediscover the Catholic faith. The first step is recognizing that tug as your Heavenly Father yearning for your return to the Church. We invite you to take a further step of going to confession. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered at St. James Saturday: 3:15 - 3:45 PM or by appointment

The next step is to return to the routine of worshiping at weekly Mass. By going to Mass, you are able to experience Christ’s presence in the liturgies and carry that presence out into the world. Our community grows by worshipping and praying together - we would love to grow with you! Mass times are listed on our Home page of our website.

The Church has compelling answers to all of your questions. The Catholic Church has never wavered in its mission to spread truth and love throughout the world. The Lord wants us all to know and understand His truth, so we can embrace it wholeheartedly and live by it. Christ himself reminds us that “The truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

Consider this a sign, and your invitation to rediscover the truth, wonder and mystery of the Catholic faith. We are family.

Welcome home!
