Welcome Home to St. James

Easter 2020


We were notified when we were setting up the live stream Mass on the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord that YouTube will now be strictly applying their policy that if a live stream is done by camera, which we use, then the organization would be required to have a minimum of 1,000 SUBSCRIBERS (we are now at just over 800 subscribers, if we are able to get 200 more we will meet the requirements).

Therefore, I am requesting that everyone become a SUBSCRIBER to St. James Music Ministry YouTube so that we can fulfill this requirement and continue using a camera in the process of live streaming our Masses. Even if you are using the FaceBook platform please subscribe by using the following link.


Please send the link to your relatives and friends asking them to do the same. St. James Music Ministry presently has around 262 SUBCRIBERS. This is within our reach. Let’s please get this done by this Saturday so we will be able to live stream via YouTube each Sunday.

Thank you,
Fr. John
