Architecturally, St. James is my favorite church in Kenosha - I've taken lots of pictures of its exterior. I've only gone to mass there once, though, a couple years ago - oh, and I attended the Stations of the Cross there once too. It was the first time I ever received communion at a rail. I love the windows, they're very Eastlake Victorian, what with the geometric designs.

BTW, thanks for answering my question about the pastor from that prior post.

Oh, and I'd forgotten to mention how surprised I was that St. James never got a Latin Mass after the Motu Proprio was issued last year (today being its one year anniversary) since it has a reputation for being the hard-core traddy church in town...at least according to the other Catholics I know.

Its my favorite, but for obvious reasons.

We asked. The Archdiocese said to go to St. Stanislaus in Milwaukee instead.

Ah, that's unfortunate - I know people who won't go to St Stanislaus because the neighborhood apparently has a reputation for having crime. Plus gas is expensive.

I've been to a couple high masses in Illinois and thought they were wonderful - I'd go at least monthly if one were offered in town.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
