A Parish of the Diocese of Greensburg, Pennsylvania
Thank you for visiting the Saint James Parish website! Saint James has been serving Catholic believers and our local community for over 100 years. Our Parish family strives to bring the Gospel of Christ into our daily lives at home, at school and at work.
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.
