Maybe you grew up Catholic.
Maybe you think of yourself as Catholic.
Maybe you haven’t been to church in a while.
Or, you are worried that you won’t be welcomed here.
And maybe it feels awkward and scary to take that first step.
Question. Doubts. Yearning, but not sure for what.
We get it. We’ve been there. Now we are here.
Maybe God is calling you, too.
Just as you are.
If you are here for the first time, we want to welcome you to beautiful Redondo Beach and to St. James Catholic Church.
We thank God for you being part of the body of Christ and joining us for our journey during Lent. We are honored by your presence and are not complete without you. Whether you are visiting us for the first time or visiting us occasionally, we truly want you to feel welcome here, and make Saint James Catholic Church your home away from home.
As a member of our family, we want you to know that we are constantly striving to improve the stewardship of the gifts that God has entrusted to us in service to others. We welcome your participation in our decision process on how best to meet the changing needs of our growing family. Feel free to seek out any member of our pastoral council or team members to provide us information on how best to serve you.
We hope you will join us as we strive to deepen our faith and reach out to those that have drifted away, are hurting and looking for meaning in their lives. Invite them to one of our Lenten Services.
Or, perhaps you know someone that they feel that life is pretty good right now. Things are moving along nicely in their lives and they are comfortable. No financial, medial, marital, work or family issues. Fantastic! What a great time to offer thanks to God for His mercy, love and blessings in their lives.
We know that life has a way of changing dramatically with a single phone call. During those times, our faith is severely shaken and tested. Know that as a member of the Body of Christ, we are here to help you and help you through these times.
We are blessed with hundreds of volunteers working in ministry. Their dedication and love of God and his children is inspiring to all that witness their unselfish efforts. As a growing family, we are always welcoming new members to our ministries and look to create new ones for those emerging needs in our family. Please consider lending your time, talents and treasure to help us change lives. You will grow into that holy, healthy, vibrant person that God created you to be.
May God continue to bless you all the days of your life.
