“For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many”

Community Meals

Each week we open our kitchen to the community.  At 8:00 Wednesday mornings, we open our doors for free breakfast and prayer.  Most Wednesday evenings we hold Emmaus Meals, free soup suppers that are followed by Christian education.  Both times are open to the public and available to those who do or do not wish to stay for prayer or the lecture and discussion.

Little Scholar’s School

We partner with Yohana Mazuguni and his Young Scholars School in Tanzania.  Our relationship with the school has lasted over seven years, during which we’ve helped them build a water tower, fund school supplies, and assist with day-to-day needs of Father Yohana and his school.



Parking lots are boring, and (as we share ours with the county offices across the street), we decided to create a labyrinth in ours.  The labyrinth is not, of course, a simple maze, but is a physical symbol of meditation.  The labyrinth may be walked or simply traced with the eyes.  If you’re interested in labyrinths, or want to know about ours, ask one of our parishioners.  Or walk it yourself! 

Coquille Food Bank

Together with other churches from around the community, folks at St. James take part in the Coquille Food Bank.  The Food Bank is for anyone with a Coquille address or who otherwise resides in the city.  It’s located in the basement of Holy Name Catholic Church and is open from 2-4 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays.
