Flu Season & Liturgy
With one of the worst flu outbreak seasons in almost 10 years, along with the many other easily contractible viruses making rounds, in the best welfare of our parishioners and visitors, we are implementing protocols to assist with prevention.  These protocols will remain into effect until the CDC issues that these viruses are maintained and controlled.  The protocols will include:
•Holy water fonts will remain drained
•We recommend a smile, nod or wave during the Sign of Peace
•We recommend not holding hands during the Lord's Prayer
•Suspension of the Consecrated Wine during Communion. 

We remind everyone of the importance of proper hygiene and washing hands after each visit to the bathroom ( and blowing nose/sneezing/coughing).  There will be hand sanitizers available in restrooms and in the vestibule.  Any parishioner who is sick is not obligated to attend Sunday Mass.  For additional liturgical/flu related concerns, please visit the US Conference of Catholic Bishop's designated site:  http:/bit.ly/2nuetHf .  We thank you for helping us keep the health and safety of our parish family and friends in mind.  These protocols were in effect during the last major outbreak.

American Cancer Society - Relay for Life

Make a special gift in honor or memory of someone special…

Relay for Life of Cabarrus County will take place Saturday, April 28, 6-10pm at Harris Road Middle School. All are welcome to come see what Relay is all about!  There will be food, games, basket raffles, and silent auction items.    
Relay represents the HOPE that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, those who face cancer will be supported, and those who fight cancer will one day succeed in eliminating the disease forever.
You are invited to honor or remember someone who has fought or is still fighting cancer with a luminaria. During the Lighting of the Luminaria Ceremony, candles will be lit around the track in memory and in honor of loved ones and friends who have had cancer. The Luminaria Ceremony begins at 9:00 pm.  You do not need to be an actual participant in the Relay to take part in this tribute.  With your donation of $10 for each luminaria, the name of the individual you have designated will appear on it.    
Thank you for your continued support of the St. James Angel Brigade team!


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.
