Mission Statement

                We, the parish family of Saint James Church, New Alexandria, consisting of diverse, dedicated hard working people, hold firm the traditions and beliefs of our Catholic faith.  Our Mission is to keep this faith alive and growing through the love of the Eucharist, the Sacraments, and the Word of God. Responding to our Baptismal call we are devoted to fostering spiritual formation, strengthening Christian values, evangelizing, and caring for all. As we travel on our Journey of a Lifetime, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we help the community strive to seek the Kingdom of God.

Saint James Church, New Alexandria, Pennsylvania

New - March 16, 2023
Join Bishop Kulick for a Lenten Evening of Reflection and accept his challenge during the month of March to become an intentional disciple. Each month throughout 2023, Bishop Kulick issues “Faithful Challenges” as part of the National Eucharistic Revival. https://youtu.be/GS-X-LkFDwI



In a coordinated effort to share the wonderful works of our Diocese the Diocesan Lenten Appeal page has been updated to reflect our 2023 theme, One Body in Christ. This year, we are focusing on the wonderful ministries taking place within our four counties, such as our international priests, faith formation, youth volunteers and Catholic Charities. Every Thursday during this Lenten season, you will be able to view an updated video highlighting these ministries on the Diocesan Facebook page, website and YouTube channel.  

Below is the link to our DLA giving page and a kick-off video message from Bishop Kulick.
