• Priesthood Sunday 10/28

    Priesthood Sunday is October 28. With all the negative publicity over the last few months, it is certain that they would greatly appreciate us showing how thankful we are for them and for their ministry. Some ideas that have been shared include a spiritual bouquet, a card, offering a mass for them, or other small remembrances such as offering rosaries, Chaplets, Holy Hours, fasting, or others. A basket will be placed in the Narthex for parishioner offerings and these expressions of appreciation will be presented to our priests during Masses on the 28th.   Read More

  • St. James the Greater by El Greco

    St. James the Greater by El Greco

    You may have noticed inside our church front doors a new painting on the wall. 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
