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.  

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.

New - May 25, 2023

Accept Bishop Kulick’s May Faithful Challenge to serve the poor. Consider becoming a volunteer with or donating to St. Vincent DePaul, one of the largest charitable organizations in the world serving those in need. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international, nonprofit, Catholic lay organization of more than 850,000 men and women in 150 countries worldwide.




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.
