Welcome to St. James Catholic Church


Welcome to Saint James! Since the early days of Christianity the community has been the bonding force of the church. In 1906, Saint James Parish was established to meet the needs of Catholics in the Highlands area. The Baroque-Byzantine style church, designed by James J. Gaffney, was completed in 1913, and no expense was spared in its design. The present school building, located behind the church on Edenside Avenue, was completed in 1924, and the present parish house in 1929. Today at Saint James we work to build community through our ministry. We reach out to others in various ways - through worship, service, our school, formation/education and special activities such as fish frys, angelic auction, Italian/American Festival and other activities sponsored by our various parish organizations. We touch others in both work and play. Saint James invites and welcomes all parishioners and friends to become part of the growing comunity.

Actually there is no mention of how many Magi there were or that they were kings riding ... >>read more

Should We Rethink the Way We Are Educating Our Daughters?
by Mary Kochan
