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

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

The Solemnity of the Annunciation celebrates the coming of the Angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary to announce to her the special mission God had chosen for her in being the mother of His only son.We are continually reminded of the importance of this feast to our salvation in various devotional prayers. Two examples that highlight the importance of this feast are the joyous mysteries of the Rosary and the Angelus.The feast of the Annunciation began to be celebrated on this day during the fourth and fifth centuries, soon after the date for celebrating Christmas was universalized throughout the Church. This feast celebrates the Incarnation of the Second Person of the Trinity and the salvation of all mankind. This point of our salvation was deeply discussed by many of the Church fathers, to explain it to the faithful and to show the deep love God has for us. Some of the Church fathers who wrote on this were St. Athanasius, St. Gregory of Nyssa and St. Augustine.
