Welcome to the website of St. James the Apostle Church in Springfield, N.J.!  In whatever way you found us, or for whatever reason, we are glad you did!  Pope Benedict XVI, in speaking about the internet and computer technology, once said:  New technologies allow people to meet each other beyond the confines of space and of their own culture, creating in this way an entirely new way of potential friendships.”  In this spirit we welcome you to our website in the hopes that you will come to know a little bit more about our parish family, that you will find here what you are seeking, and in some mysterious way God will touch your heart through something you may discover here.

LIVING ROSARY

LIVING ROSARY

Friday, October 13th - St. James commemorated the final visit of Our Lady to the children of Fatima with a balloon launch! After launching the rosary balloon, we went in the church and we prayed the Rosary. There were over 150 people there. The Holy Spirit does work in mysterious ways.

The Blessed Mother needs you!

There are only a few faithful parishioners who get together every Monday for a weekly Rosary, Novena & Benediction Service.  Will you be one of us?

In these tumultuous times, we all need more prayers not less! Can you give 45 minutes each week to praying the rosary on Monday nights starting from 6:45-7:30p.m? Now more than ever, we need to come together as a faith filled community to practice & profess our faith.  Everyone is welcome both young & old.
