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.

Upcoming Events & Meetings

 

The St. James Angel Brigade team wanted to let you know that Cabarrus and Rowan Counties have combined their Relay for Life events this year due to Covid-19 restrictions.  While we are not able to have our normal yearly event, we are grateful that we have been given permission to display luminaries and acknowledge those that have had a cancer diagnosis. The event will be a drive through displaying the luminaries in honor of and in memory of cancer survivors. It will take place on Saturday, August 22, from 4:00 - 8:00pm at the Kannapolis downtown area along Laureate Way, starting near the Gem Theater and continuing past the Kannapolis City Hall.  Even if you did not purchase a luminary, you are welcome to help us celebrate survivors and honor those that we have lost to cancer.  Survivors, please decorate your cars so you can be celebrated as you drive by!  If you would like to purchase a luminary, contact Lynne Parette at [email protected].  As always, thank you for your support over the years of the Angel Brigade team and the American Cancer Society!
