“Good-bye Drive By” for Bishop-elect Larry J. Kulick
Sunday, January 31, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. will be the last weekend Mass celebrated by our Pastor, Bishop-elect Larry J. Kulick here at Saint James Parish. We are planning on live-streaming this Mass on our Parish YouTube Channel. With the COVID pandemic safety restrictions currently in place, unfortunately, we are unable to have any farewell celebration together as a parish. In light of this, we are planning a “Good-bye Drive By” starting at 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. following this last Mass for anyone who would like to come to the parish parking lot and extend their best wishes to Bishop-elect Kulick in the safety of their own vehicle. We will have parishioners stationed in various areas of the parking lot assisting with the traffic flow. Please join us to extend your well wishes!
On behalf of all the Saint James parishioners and staff of Saint James Parish, we congratulate our pastor, Bishop-elect Larry J. Kulick, J.C.L. as Sixth Bishop of Greensburg. The Diocese of Greensburg is very blessed to have you as our new shepherd. God bless you and you will always be in our prayers!
