The Future of St. James Parish

If any parishioner needs to switch their registration date for the listening Session, please contact

If any parishioner wants to register for a Listening Session but does not have an email address, please contact the office and we can register you using the parish office email address. Leave a msg with first & last name, phone number and the preferred date you would like.

Please everyone, make some time to come to one of the Listening’s very important for the future of our Parish. Our Parish Listening Sessions will be November 14th AND 16th, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm each night (you only need to attend 1). Register at Currently we have only 33 parishioners registered. All Parishioners are encouraged to attend 1 of the 2 sessions.

An overview of the planning area and multiple DRAFT model options to consider for our respective planning area will be presented. A brief time will be allowed for small group discussion and facilitated large group feedback. 

After the final listening session in each planning area, the Archdiocese of St. Louis will make public the content presented at all the parish’s Listening Sessions in that planning area and will offer an additional opportunity for parishioners to provide open-ended feedback through
an online survey. The survey will remain open until December 31, 2022. Parishioner feedback to the models is critical, as it will be used to help shape the future of St. James Parish! .

October, the Month of the Holy Rosary

October is designated as the "Month of the Rosary" because in this month the Church celebrates the Marian advocation of "Our Lady of the Rosary" on Oct. 7. The Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary, also celebrated as Our Lady of Victory or Victories, was established by
Pope St. Pius V in 1571 to celebrate the miraculous victory of the Christian forces in the Battle of Lepanto on Oct. 7 of that year. St. John Paul II called the rosary his favorite prayer, "in which we meditate with Mary upon the mysteries which she as a Mother meditated on in her heart (Lk. 2:19.)."

The best time to start praying the rosary was yesterday; the next best time is now.
