Parish Mission Statement:
In faith we come together to celebrate the Eucharist as a Parish Family;
and as a Catholic community of faith,
we are sent to be Christ
to the world around us.

Be doers of the word not hearers only...

Best Wishes to Fr. Bob!

Our St. James Parish community has been so blessed by the leadership and companionship of Fr. Bob these 12 years. We invite all parishioners to offer Fr. Bob their words of thanks, and best wishes on his next assignment.

Please visit the Goodbye Fr. Bob web page here on our parish website, where you may write your personal message to Fr. Bob – a CD will be made of all the messages, and presented to Fr. Bob at his Going-away Party on the weekend of June 6th/7th.

We encourage all parishioners to participate!

Eucharistic Minister Training – April & May

We are always in need of Eucharistic Ministers to help serve at our weekend liturgies. It seems that we have many hands but in fact, we are often serving more than once or twice a month. Please consider joining us by contacting Kathy Brown at or (631) 828-5264. You must register for the required training session(s) offered by the Diocese. These sessions are only offered twice a year so don’t miss the opportunity!

The annual St. James Golf Classic will once again be held at St. George's Country Club on May 4th. Contact Chris McKeever: (631) 375-7407 or or Chris Fletcher: (631) 487-2434 or for information or to reserve.

Pentecost Sunday Weekend – May 23rd & 24th

"When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim." (Acts 2:2-4)

In recent years, the celebration of Pentecost at St. James Parish has included the proclamation of the First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians 12:3b-7,12-13) in a variety of languages. If you speak a second language other than English and would like to participate at one of our masses on the weekend of May 23-24,2015, (Memorial Day Weekend) kindly contact Lorraine or Ueli Laeng at (631) 737-4164.
