The Diocese of Savannah has made an announcement regarding Holy Week and Easter. The public celebration of Holy Mass was suspended until April 5 with the hope that we could celebrate Holy Week and the Sacred Triduum with our people: unfortunately, we are unable to do this. The public celebration of Mass will continue to be suspended through Holy Week until notice is given that the faithful may again attend mass. As much as we are saddened by this decision, we must support it by action and prayer to continue to help end the spread of the coronavirus. Be assured that all sacred liturgy during this time will be live streamed and that your intentions will be prayed for.

To comply with Mayor Van Johnson’s mandatory directive to shelter-in-place, St. James Catholic Church will no longer offer Confessions and will keep the church doors locked until April 8.
We know this is very hard for many of you to read. However, please know that we are praying with you and for you.
Going forward, we will continue to live stream:
- Mass Monday through Friday at 8:30 a.m.
- Mass on Saturdays and Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
- Wednesday Holy Hour at 5:00 p.m.
- Catholicism 101 on Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m.
There are still ways you can make a visit to Our Lord…on your way home from the grocery store or pharmacy, park in our lot in front of the church and enjoy a few minutes of quiet time with Him. Join EWTN for the live streaming of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
God is in your heart and He knows how difficult this is for you. Take this time to offer this as a sacrifice for Him. Also, remember that these restrictions are temporary.
Please keep in touch with us as we provide updates on this crisis. We will keep in touch with you.
