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 Policy

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.

 

Bap­tism

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.
