Welcome to Saint James


The grace of Our Lord, Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the communion of the Holy Spirit
be with you all!

Beautiful, historic Saint James Church, atop a hill in the heart of downtown Manchester, is a traditional Catholic parish devoted to preaching the word of God and bringing God’s love to His people.

Parish life centers on the Eucharist, which sustains us, and on reception of the Sacraments, through which we are nurtured.

Under the patronage of Saint James the Great, apostle and martyr, members of Saint James strive to imitate Christ and live as He wants us to live. By strengthening God’s life in us, we are empowered to bring the light of Christ to our community and to the world.

Everyone over 14 years of age is bound to abstain from eating meat on
Ash Wednesday and on all Fridays within the season of Lent.

On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, those between the
ages of 18 and 60 are bound to observe the law of fast. On these two days, only one full meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs; but together they should not equal another full meal.

Talk with a priest if you have any question about whether these laws pertain to you.
