March


The month of March is dedicated to St. Joseph. The entire month falls during the liturgical season of Lent which is represented by the liturgical color purple - a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart.

As we continue our journey "up to Jerusalem" during the month of March, three prominent ideas are proposed for our contemplation by the liturgy of Lent: the Passion and Resurrection of Christ, baptism and penance. The Solemnity of St. Joseph (normally on March 19th) is a special landmark this month in which we will celebrate the great honor bestowed upon the foster father of Jesus. And if you are Irish, St. Patrick's feast is another cause for a joyful celebration. The feast of the Annunciation is celebrated on March 25th.

MISSION STATEMENT

St.James Parish strives to be aware of the unique nature of our Roman Catholic tradition and our call to be a Christ-centered community. As baptized members of this faith community in a diverse Christian environment, we strive to promote the kingdom of God on earth. We achieve this through the scriptures and by celebration of the Eucharist which draws us into a deeper personal relationship with Christ. Through this relationship with Christ we share our faith with all the people of God. We strive through Catholic education, the Family Formation Program, evangelization, and good stewardship to mirror Gospel values as we reach out to serve the larger community.
