    Thanks so much for all who made our Parish Festival possible!Fr. Tom for being the driving force behind it and for knowing that just as a family needs time to play together and enjoy each other‘s company, so does our parish family!To all of you who came to Festival, maybe for the first time, many for the umpteenth time, all taking time to be together and just enjoy the “rain on the parking lot!”Most importantly, thanks to the countless people who helped – serving, setting up, taking down. Cleaning, prepping, toting, carrying, dumping garbage! Keeping the games going and the treats flowing. Cooking the wonderful food and providing us with cookies and items for the bake sale.No matter what you did, your effort made this a wonderful day!Of course, there are those who go unnamed but hopefully never not thanked, who year after year show up and do whatever we need:– The men of the KofC who staff the Bingo Hall and the Beer Tent. – The ladies of the CDA who serve faithfully in the lines and provide endless cookies and ice cream!– The Melodrama crew who spend hours making sno-cones, popcorn and cotton candy (just how many hours does it take to get the cotton candy out of your hair??)Special persons who take care of other things:Amy Pierce and her army of face paintersDenny Yeaman – securityDan and Lauren Nugyen – our DJ and bake sale personJim Lewandowski – First AidThose faithful ‘dunkees’ who wait patiently while someone throws a ball to see if it is a hit or a miss!

  • St. James the Greater by El Greco

    St. James the Greater by El Greco

    You may have noticed a painting on the wall inside our church front doors . This is a famous painting of our patron saint St. James the Greater by El Greco from 1606. Some parishioners have donated this copy of the painting to us for our benefit. I hope you enjoy it. We will be putting a little plaque underneath it to explain who it is and what it is about. El Greco was originally from Crete being born in 1541. He became a master of Post-Byzantine art and moved from Venice to Rome to Madrid and, finally, to Toledo, Spain in 1577, where he remained for the rest of his life. It was there that he painted his best known works including St. James the Greater. His style was quite unusual and unique for his time and was more appreciated by us in the 20th century. He died in Toledo in 1614. Read More
