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.

Thank you to all those who donated items and to all those who came out to help us put the bags together.  And many thanks to those who will be making the deliveries.  We hope that the breakfast bags will do just a little bit to help those in need.

Novena in Honor of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

Novena in Honor of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

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.
