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.

Seven Churches Lenten Bike Tour

A Roman Catholic Lenten tradition is to visit seven churches on Holy Thursday or Good Friday. Since Rome is a little too far to travel, our newly formed Outdoor Ministry would like to bring it closer to home. On Good Friday, April 19th at 7:30am we will meet here at Saint James Church. We will start with prayer and then begin a bike tour to six other Catholic Churches in the surrounding area. We will stop at each church for prayer and reflection. Our journey will end right where it began, at Saint James. The bike tour will include road travel as well as paved trail travel. Safety is important and we will look out for each other, however, all bikers ride at their own risk. *It is required that all riders have a bell on their bicycle and a helmet on their head. Thank you! If you’d like to join us we will meet in the parking lot at 7:30am we start riding at 8:00am. Please text: 908-447-4082 if you are planning on attending so we know how many riders we will have.

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.
