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.

Saint of the Day

Servant of God Francis Garces and Companions

A contemporary of the American Revolution and of Blessed Junipero Serra, Francisco Garcés was born in 1738 in Spain, where he joined the Franciscans.After ordination in 1763, he was sent to Mexico. Five years later he was assigned to San Xavier del Bac near Tucson, one of several missions the Jesuits had founded in Arizona and New Mexico before being expelled in 1767 from all territories controlled by the Catholic king of Spain. In Arizona, Francisco worked among the Papago, Yuma, Pima and Apache Native Americans. His missionary travels took him to many places, including the Grand Canyon and California.Friar Francisco Palou, a contemporary, writes that Father Garcés was greatly loved by the indigenous peoples, among whom he lived unharmed for a long time. They regularly gave him food and referred to him as "Viva Jesus," which was the greeting he taught them to use.For the sake of their indigenous converts, the Spanish missionaries wanted to organize settlements away from the Spanish soldiers and colonists. But the commandant in Mexico insisted that two new missions on the Colorado River, Misión San Pedro y San Pablo and Misión La Purísima Concepción, be mixed settlements.A revolt among the Yumas against the Spanish left Friars Juan Diaz and Matias Moreno dead at Misión San Pedro y San Pablo. Friars Francisco Garcés and Juan Barreneche were killed at Misión La Purísima Concepción, the site of Fort Yuma.
