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 

Camino 8K/5K

The 10th Annual Camino of St.James 8k/5k is just around the corner!!  This year the run/walk will be held Sunday August 11, 2019.  Last year's race was a great success and the Camino Run/Walk Committee is ready to do it again this year!

It is time again to call on those who made our previous run/walks so successful...the VOLUNTEERS!  Please consider volunteering again for this year's event. We understand the important role volunteers play in ensuring a successful event!   Please sign-up after Masses if you can help out again this year.  If you are not interested in volunteering this year, consider running or walking the event, or just come out and cheer on those participating!  We would love to line the course with friendly faces!
Also, please spread the word about our event.  Tell family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and anyone you think might enjoy a run or walk on a beautiful course followed by a delicious pancake breakfast!  Send them to www.RunSignUp.com or pickup registration forms in the gathering space at church.
