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.
PFIZER COVID 19 VACCINATIONS
St. James will have 50 COVID 19 vaccinations available on Thursday, May 20th, 2021. The event will take place in Geiger Hall. It is the Pfizer vaccination so anyone signing up needs to plan on a second shot here at St. James on June 10th, 2021. You must be at least 12 years old to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Please call the office at 704-720-0600 if you have any questions. Thank you!!
SIGN-UP GENIUS UPDATE
We will no longer be using Sign-up Genius to reserve seats for Mass. It will now be a first come, first served seating arrangement.
Every other row of pews will be open and we ask that you leave 2 seat cushions between you and the family next to you. PLEASE REMEMBER YOU MUST WEAR YOUR MASK AT ALL TIMES WHILE INSIDE THE CHURCH, USE HAND SANITIZER AND KEEP PROPER DISTANCE FROM THOSE AROUND YOU.
As always, we thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate new guidelines and mandates.
If you have any questions, please contact the parish office.
