    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    I am very happy to be back in this community

    with all of you, especially during this season.

    Even though our world holds many distractions

    and temptations during this time of year, let us

    all pray that we keep in our thoughts why we

    celebrate this time. We joyfully celebrate our

    Lord Jesus Christ’s birth into our world togeth-

    er as a community.

    A very Merry Christmas to you all!

    7:30, 9:00 & 11:00 Masses.


    Special Thoughts from the St. James Pro Life Ministry

    The Miracle of Conception Week 16 of 40 – Join us on the journey

    I enjoy drinking a lot of the fluid when it is sweet, but not when you’ve eaten something sour.

    I can turn somersaults & I yawn and stretch. I am 6” tall!

    A new life starts when just one sperm cell from the father joins and fertilizes an egg cell from the mother. Just moments after concep-tion numerous hereditary characteristics are determined. These include the different features and individual trademarks such as gender, color of eyes, hair and skin; the shape of the face and body; and certain qualities of temperament and intelligence. A wonderful and unique little life has begun.

    Join us the 1st Sunday of every month at 8:00am as we pray the rosary for the unborn in front of the Planned

    Parenthood at 5771 W. Eugie with the Knights of Columbus. The Pro-Life Ministry would like to invite you to join us every 1st Tuesday of the month at 6pm in the church hall. Help us to defend those who cannot defend themselves!


    This week there will be no donuts.


    Jeremiah: 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.”
