Dear Parishioners, Visitors and Friends

At the start of another year, 2021, which we welcome as God’s gracious gift to all of us, I offer heartfelt wishes of peace to all in our parish community. Thank you for your generous support to our parish during the past year and thank you for your friendship and prayers. 2020 was indeed a year where we faced many challenges, and yet we witnessed the great results that can be achieved when we work together as one big family united in Christ. 2021 will see us gather within our renovated worshipping space and hopefully put COVID-19 finally behind us. May we all have a blessed and fulfilled year ahead as we continue to journey as missionary disciples. Go gently and a very happy New Year to you and your extended families.

Fr Jude, Fr Silvio, Fr Brendan, Fr Mario, Dcn Royden and the Parish Council.


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.

May St James intercede for us today and help us to follow his example. Like him, may we recognize our human limitations, and thus grow in our humility and our loving trust in God who desires to do great things through us and bring us into His kingdom of love and self-giving.

May God bless us all on this day of St James as we continue to build bridges that unite us all to Christ. Happy Feast Day to all Parishioners and friends.
Fr Jude and the Parish Council
