Until the crisis passes, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been lifted. No one should feel obliged to come to church. This will remain in place until it is safe for all to return to church. Sunday remains the Lord’s Day, so Mass can be followed on television, radio, and online with a spiritual communion. Devotional practices such as an hour of silent prayer, the Rosary, scripture reading, or other meditations can mark the day.
Marriage Preparation at St. James provides an opportunity for reflection and discernment on the sacramental and vocational nature of the life-long commitment to marriage. The St. Jame’s preparation program fulfills the standard marriage preparation requirements for the Archdiocese of St Paul/Minneapolis.
Couples are expected to begin preparation at least one year in advance, please contact Fr. David.
Since the earliest of times baptism has been administered to children, for it is a grace and a gift of God that does not presuppose any human merit; children are baptized into the faith of the Church. Entry into Christian life gives access to true freedom. — Catechism of the Catholic Church #1282
We want to welcome parents — whether birth parents, or adoptive parents, whether couples or a single parent, whether their child is an infant or is already exploring their new world, whether as parents their faith is strong or they are just beginning to make it their own, whether they as a family share the same religious background or they come from very different religious traditions.
Please contact Fr. David or a deacon to schedule preparation for Baptism.
