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.
