Here at St. Alexander's, St. Joseph's & St. James's we welcome in the spirit of Jesus as we claim and celebrate our catholic faith by reaching out with love to all God's children.  Our family of faith cherishes the gift of all life and welcomes the faith filled and those who struggle with faith.  Everyone is welcome to worship with us.  This includes people of every age, color, ethnicity, origin, ability, marital status, sexual orientation, and life situation.  As a family of faith we journey as one, together we learn to forgive, to heal, to witness, to welcome and to love one another as Jesus has loved us.

We gather daily as a faith community to celebrate the Eucharist together.  Between 15 to 20 people attend daily Mass and approximately 550 to 650 parishioners attend Sunday Masses.  Assisting at Masses are Altar Servers, Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Ushers, Greeters, Music Ministry consisting of one choir, cantors/leaders of songs, organist and one choir director.  

On Monday mornings following Mass, we pray as a community of faith the Novena to our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.  There is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament the third Tuesday of the month following the 9 a.m. Mass at St. Alexander's concluding with benediction at 4 p.m..  In addition the recitation of the Rosary is offered after every week day Mass.

We invite and encourage you to consider joining one of our many committees, ministry groups and organizations that enhance the spiritual growth of our parish community.

Saint of the Day

St. Louis IX of France

St. Louis was born to King Louis VIII and Blanche of Castile, at Poissy on April 25th 1215. Louis was made King at only 11 years of age, and was the father of 11 children. He led an exemplary life, bearing constantly in mind his mother's words: "I would rather see you dead at my feet than guilty of a mortal sin." His biographers have written of the long hours he spent in prayer, fasting, and penance, without the knowlege of his people. The French king was an avid lover of justice, who took great measures to ensure that the process of arbitration was carried out properly. All of 13th century Christian Europe willingly looked upon him as an international judge. He was renowned for his charity. "The peace and blessings of the realm come to us through the poor," he would say. Beggars were fed from his table; he ate their leavings, washed their feet, ministered to the wants of the lepers, and daily fed over one hundred poor. He founded many hospitals and houses: the House of the Felles-Dieu for reformed prostitutes, the Quinze-Vingt for 300 blind men (1254),  as well as hospitals at Pontoise, Vernon, Compiégne. St. Louis was a patron of architecture. The Sainte Chappelle, an architectural gem, was constructed in his reign as a reliquary for the Crown of Thorns, and it was under his patronage that Robert of Sorbonne founded the "Collège de la Sorbonne," which became the seat of the theological faculty of Paris, the most illustrious seat of learning in the medieval period.St. Louis died of the plague near Tunis, August 25th, 1270, during the Second Crusade.  He is the patron of masons and builders.
