"No one person can do all it takes to fulfill the mission of Christ. Together, we make the mission present in our parish and thus impact the lives of those around us." - Fr. John Burnette, Pastor

"The Bishop was impressed by all we're doing in the parish, and our people are so active and involved." - Cheryl Miller, Finance Council

Welcome to Saints James and Patrick Parish! Our faith-filled community celebrates Christ's love for us through the sacraments, prayer, and stewardship, and we invite you to join our parish to experience how that love can impact your life. In addition to celebrating the sacraments, we offer various faith formation and service opportunities. We have more than 50 Liturgical Ministries you can take part in, and our social events strengthen our relationships with God and each other. You can learn more about our parish by reading our weekly bulletins and monthly newsletters. Our parish school - St. Patrick School - provides a faith-based, service-oriented education that allows students to understand how their individual talents can benefit others. We are all part of God's family, and our parish family isn't complete without you. We invite you to join our parish so you can live our mission of 'Remaining in Christ and Revealing Christ to others'
