John Price is a graduate of the University of Texas and the Virginia Theological Seminary. He was ordained a priest in 1965 and retired from the Texas Army National Guard as State Area Command Chaplain (Colonel) of the Texas Military Forces in 1995. He graduated from the School for Spiritual Directors at the Pecos Benedictine Monastery in New Mexico in 1986 and has been involved in teaching and leading spiritual direction ever since.

Rev. Price is on the faculty of the diocesan school for spiritual directors, the FIND program, and the author of 'Revealing Heaven: The Christian Case for Near-Death Experiences.' He is currently writing another book on the many lessons we can learn from near-death accounts. You will find Fr. John a delightful and unique individual. Grab a friend, and come hear Fr. John at 11:00 am in the Parish Hall. Lunch will be served afterward.

Plan for the future...

As a reminder, St. James has Columbarium Niches available in the Meditation Garden. This area has created a beautiful place for prayer and remembrance and provides an appropriate burial place for the cremated remains of our faithful departed.
The garden is a place for memory, comfort and support as a telling witness to the faith and hope of resurrection to eternal life.

A niche in either Columbarium is available for $1,500.00.
Proceeds received from the sale of niches will be placed in the St. James' Endowment Fund.
Please contact Terry Eastin at email for details.
