We had a blessed Homecoming Weekend here at St. James Parish this past weekend. I am thankful to God for blessing our parish for the Homecoming Weekend and for our Parish Homecoming Weekend Committee, our Parish Altar Society and the St. James Knights of Columbus for their stewardship and well-focused organization put into the Homecoming.
I was under the weather and not able to attend the Homecoming Dance, however I heard nothing but positive comments about the dance and we had good attendance for it.
The Sunday Homecoming Lunch/Reception in Kirwin Hall featured a delicious meal and great fellowship which had in attendance current, new and former parishioners. So now that the 2018 Parish Homecoming is in the books, we will start preparing and planning for next year’s big celebration: The 90th Anniversary of the establishment of St. James Parish and the 80th Anniversary of the Dedication of the church building.
