"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." - Matthew 18:20
Our Faith Community
Saint James Parish Community represents a diverse gathering of those from all areas, ages, backgrounds and stages of life. We come together to worship but also to work alongside one another to better our communities, to enrich the lives of those we serve, and to live out our Faith and bear witness to the life of Christ and the fellowship of man.
We have a rotating Music Ministry schedule that is open to all ages and ranges. From our Children's Choir to the Knights of Columbus Men's choir and many other groupings, our Parish welcomes any musical talents to join in whether they be vocal or instrumental to assist our Music Ministry. Please contact the Parish Office if you would like more information.
If you are wanting to volunteer to the community, we have a variety of ways and outlets that facilitate the need for our Parish members and community to give back to the greater Southeastern Wyoming area. Our Time and Talent sheets are available year round, and we list in our bulletin and here on our site the multitude of ways the faithful can serve the community.
Bible Study Groups
We encourage a deeper and enriched relationship with the Scripture. Currently we have a Women's Bible Group that meets weekly, but are always open to more groups beginning within the Church to assist our Parishioners with greater walks with the Gospels and understanding of the Liturgy. For more information on our current Bible Study Group please call the Parish Office.
Welcome Mass and Brunch
Each month on the third Sunday, Saint James Parishoners and those visiting are welcomed to stay after 10 am Mass for a light breakfast and to join in the fellowship of being at the Lord's Table together. Here we meet and greet one another and get to know new families who are either visiting or moving to our community!
Our Parish Community offers support for and education of the Catholic families in our community. We offer a Pre-School, Faith Formation for grades PreK-8, a youth group for High Schoolers, multiple activities for young adults in our Faith, and as well Marriage Encounter weekend support and meetings with other families in the Church to help lift up and encourage those who have chosen Family Life as their vocation.
We have a dedicated team of Cathecists and Volunteers who support the teachings of the Catholic Faith and assist in nurturing both children and adults in a deeper understanding of the beauty of the Traditions and teachings of our Holy Church. If you are considering learning more about the Catholic Faith, please come by the Parish Office to learn more about classes and sacraments for all ages.
Councils & Committees
Our Councils and Committees are led by our parish priest to look at all aspects of our parish community and how we can better serve the needs of both faith community and those in our communities at large. All requests for discussion should be brought to the pastor for Committee or Council discussion and advisement in order to help facilitate changes deemed necessary within the construct of our Parish.
