History of St James

The first Mass at St. James was celebrated November 11, 1948 in the little white house on the corner of 11th and Marshall Streets. Almost immediately the school was built in 1950. Then the office and rectory were constructed in 1955, followed by the Church in 1960. The Knights of Columbus built and gave the multi-purpose building to the parish in 1992. With Bishop Burke we celebrated our Golden Jubilee on the feast of St. James, July 25, 1999. Bishop Jerome Listeki came to dedicate the new Gathering Space and elevator addition on July 24, 2006.

St James has a proud history of preaching and living the Gospel of Christ. A significantly large number of charter members continue to participate in the parish. Presently, all ages up to 97 are represented. The majority of new parishioners (but certainly not all) are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. We are closely tied with our neighbor, the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, in various ministries.

The St. James Parish Pastoral Council and other groups are now developing our Christ centered presence for the early part of the third millennium. Pray with and for us. Blessings.
