The liturgy/Mass is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all Her power flows. The aim and purpose of the Mass is that all who are made children of God by faith and baptism should come together to praise God in the midst of God's Church, to take part in the sacrifice, and to eat the Lord’s Supper.
The active engagement by the faithful, the "full, conscious and active participation," is the goal of our faith community. Centered in sacred Scripture and nourished by the Eucharist, we are called to "go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life."
Our Student Mass at St. James is unique and special. We count on the students and community to actively participate in the Mass.
Liturgical Ministers Liturgical ministers are an integral part of the Mass proclaiming the Word of God, giving communion and leading the congregation in prayer. If you have served as a Eucharistic Minister or Lector in your home parish, or if you would like to become an Extraordinary Minister of Communion, Lector or Assistant Minister (there will be formation and orientation), please step forward – we can use your assistance at all Newman Masses.
