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
