Welcome to St. James Catholic Church

 Church.... it is not a building. 

It is the heart, mind and spirit of each one of us. 

 WE are the church -

the caretakers and stewards of God's beautiful creation.

Bienvenido a la Iglesia Catolica Santiago

Iglesia ... no es un edificio.

Es el corazón, la mente y el espíritu de cada uno de nosotros.

NOSOTROS somos la iglesia -

los cuidadores y mayordomos de la bella creación de Dios.
