In 1963, a new Catholic parish was born on land that had been a field of sunflowers and in what was then the northwestern edge of Omaha. It was named St. James to honor the memory of three former bishops of Omaha: James O'Gorman, James O'Connor and James Ryan. Soon, a school and a temporary church were built, and as the parish grew and thrived, additions and renovations followed. But it wasn't until nearly 40 years later - that the "temporary" church was able to give way to a permanent building.The December 1, 2002, dedication of a new St. James church was a defining, historic and thrilling - moment for the parish. Consider it a celebration of the fruits of that 40-year wait: A church design that showers honor and glory on our Lord. A wondrous space that offers a reverent environment for praise and worship. A church that provides room for a greater experience of community before, during and after Mass.For some, this "tour" is meant to serve simply as an introduction to our facility. For others, it is intended to put a heart and a soul on a project that, to those passing by it, has seemed to be mostly bricks and mortar. But mostly, this is a thank you to the many parishioners and others who have done so much and waited so long to turn a dream into a wonderful reality.
