Welcome to the Catholic Community of        Sts. James, Cornelius & Cyprian!

One’s first impressions of visiting a new place can be life-changing for any person. When I first arrived at St. James, Mason at the end of August, 2010, I was very impressed by the beauty of the church surroundings, gardens, flowers and more so the friendliness of the people. I truly felt this was my home and it still feels that way today!

When we clustered with Sts. Cornelius & Cyprian in October of 2015, I was a little apprehensive about how I will be received as a foreign-born priest in that small, country parish. Much to my surprise and amazement, at 7:30 am on that early Sunday morning, there was standing room only in their beautiful church; from little children with their parents, teenagers, young adults and the elderly they were all there to welcome me and celebrate our first Mass together. I truly felt this was my home too and it still feels that way today!

On July 1st, 2018 St. James and Sts. Cornelius & Cyprian were merged into a single parish to make us build a strong, vibrant new community of faith. As pastor of this new community, I welcome you and hope that you too will find a new home as you come visit us. On behalf of our entire new parish community, I hope you will find welcome, joy and happiness!

Fr. Kusi Cobona, Pastor

Advent Project 2018


My dear friends,

Firstly, I’d like to thank you for your financial support and generosity in helping build a home for a homeless family each year through our Advent Project. We have brought joy and hope to the many families for whom we have provided a new home as our Christmas gift. Thank you for the love!

Secondly, this year 2018, after consultation with our newly merged Parish Pastoral Council, we have agreed to support our brothers and sisters down south who were devastated by Hurricane Michael and are now in the rebuilding process. Panama City Beach and the Diocese of Pensacola - Tallahassee were badly hit, destroying their homes, churches, schools, etc. Our Advent Project 2018 will go towards helping these families and parishes rebuild their lives.

If you’re making a check please make it to St. James or Sts. Cornelius & Cyprian and on the memo line write Advent Project 2018. You can also donate online by clicking on "Donate" below. Remember when we care for the homeless poor and needy, we are not simply doing good; it is opening a pathway for people to encounter God’s amazing grace.

Have a blessed Advent!

Fr Kusi
