Saint James the Greater Catholic Church Mission

 Saint James the Greater Roman Catholic Church Mission Statement

Our mission is to open “the door of faith” to our parishioners to make possible the life of communion with God and the transformation of the heart.  The fruit of this transformation will be to unite in charity our diverse congregation and surrounding community; “breaking down the dividing wall” (Ephesians 2:14). As members of the one body of Christ, we accept our responsibilities as good stewards of His great gifts.
