How fortunate we are in our parish that we have the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Every Monday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for our adoration in the Chapel. Also Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. Jesus is present, waiting for adorers. Eventually more days will be available as the need for other days become apparent. Many holy people and saints have gone before us who made time to spend silent and prayerful times with Jesus. For example, St. Alphonsus Liguori from the 18th century was often rapt in ecstasy before the Blessed Sacrament. He made frequent visits. One of his simple but favorite prayers was: “O my God, my Love, O everlasting Love, I love Thee!” During his life he wrote many prayers for Adoration which were translated into numerous languages. He often said that next to Holy Communion that no act of worship is so pleasing to God and none so useful as the frequent visit to our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament dwelling upon our altars. All people are invited for worship – the young and the old. Some entire families have been seen in our chapel during Adoration. What an excellent example for the young! If Jesus were actually visible in our church, everyone would run to welcome him, but he remains hidden in the Sacred Host under the appearance of bread, because he is calling us to faith, that many may come to him in humility. “The Blessed Sacrament is the “Living Heart” of each of our churches and it is our very sweet duty to honor and adore the Blessed Host, which our eyes see, -the Incarnate Word, whom they cannot see.” (Pope Paul VI).

Parish Altar Servers Needed

St. James Families,


Is your child old enough to altar serve?  Altar serving has been a very old tradition of the Church and if there is true, active, and conscious participation from our servers, it gives our children a great opportunity not only to encounter fully our Lord Jesus Christ but also to serve Him at the Altar.  More so, it provides a special place for our children to discern their own vocations in front of our Lord himself, may it be in the religious or married life.  So if your child has already received his/her first communion and you believe him/her to be capable of taking upon the duties of an altar server, please consider being an altar server!  Children need to have received First Holy Communion. Entering 4th grade or be a responsible 3rd grader.  Contact Karey Spivey at or 530-867-0783.

 The Arise Prayer


Gracious God and Father,

  we enter into your presence

  realizing you know us better

  than we know ourselves.

You know the cares and sufferings

  we carry in our own hearts.


You call us to holiness

  and we trust you to lead us

  together on our journey

  to be a renewed Church,

  for with you all things are possible.


Create us anew in Jesus Christ

  your Son.

Liberate us from all that keeps us

  from you.

Heal us from every form

  of sin and violence.


Transform us to live your Word

  more profoundly.

Awaken us to the sacred;

  rebuild trust among us.

Enliven our parishes;

  reunite our families.


May your Holy Spirit empower us

  to live as a community of love,

  freed to share in your work

  of recreating our world

  and restoring justice.


We believe you are doing

  something new,

  calling us to arise together in Christ

  to celebrate the fullness of life.

ICP Registration

On September 16, the Independent Compensation Program (ICP) will begin accepting registrations. The Diocese of Sacramento is joining those in Los Angeles, Fresno,  Orange, San Bernadino and San Diego in a program that brings compensation and justice to those who were sexually abused as minors by diocesan priests. All claims, regardless of how long ago they may have occurred, will be considered by the program. The ICP is independent, outside the control of any diocese. For more information, including how to submit a claim, please visit Let us always remember to pray for the victims of priest sexual abuse. As their pain is ongoing, so must our prayers for them be.
