Baptisms: If you have a newly born child, please contact the rectory soon so that your child may enjoy all the graces and new life that the sacrament offers. Baptisms can be held at any time, during the week, during a weekend Mass or immediately following. 

Marriages: Anyone wishing to have their marriage held at St. James Church must contact the pastor at least six months in advance of the proposed date of their wedding. The Parish Policy for Weddings will be discussed at the first meeting and then the nature and the dignity of the vocation to married life will be discussed at subsequent meetings. 

Pastoral Care of the Sick: If you or a family member from our parish is in the hospital or is homebound, especially if they are very ill, please let Father know so he can visit them. A written note, a phone message or an email is always helpful.
