Mass & Confessions

Due to renovation projects in the church that started January 9, 2023, the Saint James Catholic Church weekday Mass schedule will change temporarily until renovations are completed. We will post updates as they occur.

During the restroom renovation period (early January 2023 through late March 2023), there will be no public restrooms available for use in the Church. The closest restrooms will be in Monsignor Heller Hall, across the street from the school, accessible through Door 14. The bathrooms will only be available during the noon Mass and weekends due to school safety.

  • The Monday through Friday (including federal holidays) Weekday Mass Schedule Starting January 9th will be as follows:
    • 6:30am in the Church
    • 8:15am in the Church (time changed from 8:30am to 8:15am)
    • Noon in Monsignor Heller Hall

Confessions

For Holy Week, April 3-8, visit Lenten and Holy Week 2023 page for the Confessions schedule.

“Confessing to a priest is a way of putting my life into the hands and heart of someone else, someone who in that moment acts in the name of Jesus. It’s a way to be real and authentic: we face the facts by looking at another person and not in the mirror.” Pope Francis

The Sacrament of Reconciliation gives us the opportunity to express our sorrow for our sins and to become reconciled in our relationship with God. It provides spiritual healing as well as the grace to do the work necessary to mend relationships that have been damaged by our sins. It helps us to forgive; for once we are forgiven, we can forgive others more easily. It strengthens our resolve to resist sinful patterns in our lives.
