BIBLE Verses

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only begotten Son, that who ever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.John 3:16 (RSVCE)
If the Lord does not build the house, then in vain do the builders labour.Psalm 127:1
If, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.Romans 5:17 (RSVCE)






Dear Friends,

Welcome to St James the Apostle Parish, Hoppers Crossing North, where we rejoice in being a faith-filled, welcoming and caring Catholic community. In the tradition of St James the Apostle who held a special place in the heart and ministry of Jesus, we invite you to ‘come as you are.’

St James the Apostle was the great protector of pilgrims. In his spirit, we hope that all who venture here are made strong in faith and steadfast in hope on this pilgrim’s journey: the path of Christian life. To James and to his other disciples, Jesus simply said, “Follow me.” This Gospel truth is strikingly simple but sometimes hard to live. At St James the Apostle Parish, with the grace of God and through the generosity of our parishioners, all are invited to be sustained on the journey. Together, as a community, we step forward and risk the journey of faith.

Our lives are full of graced moments. Whether you are a visitor, a recent arrival to the rapidly growing area of Hoppers Crossing North, Tarneit or Truganina, or simply looking for a spiritual home, we are confident that you will find our parish to be an inspirational place where you can enrich your Christian life, and explore and grow in faith. The faith of our Parish community today is sustained through the experience of many humble and faith-filled witnesses who, through their generosity, shine a light in many different ministries as they help us feel the warmth of Jesus. The sacraments we celebrate at St James and these ministries which we offer are signs of a gracious God who never stops revealing himself.
