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.
