Welcome to Ss. James and Patrick Parish!
Our parish was established July 1, 2007 through the merger of the two oldest Catholic parishes in Decatur: St. Patrick (established in 1853) and St. James (established in 1877). We have two beautiful church buildings in downtown Decatur and a parish family that extends to the outskirts of the city. We are blessed with a parish school that serves children from preschool (ages 3 and 4) through 8th grade. We also have many ministries, educational programs, and service opportunities for people of all ages. We invite you to explore the pages of our website. You may contact us by phone or email for further information.
