About Us - Visitors and Newcomers

"Be doers of the word and not hearers only."

James 1:22a

We extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our website. If you are visiting for the first time, please check out the resources we have online about parish life, faith formation, ministries, organizations, and service opportunities.

The Parish of Incarnation – St. James (ISJ) has been a Catholic spiritual home for residents of the City of Trenton and Township of Ewing going back to 1917. Through the years, our touchstone has been Jesus Christ. Today, we are still called to be witnesses of the gospel. As St. James writes in his epistle, we are to be “doers of the word and not hearers only” (James 1:22a).

If you are looking for a place to worship, we extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to make this parish your home. When you are ready to make an official commitment to the Parish of Incarnation – St. James, please contact the parish office - (609) 882-2860.

In 2006, the two parishes merged to become the faith community of Incarnation - St. James. The merger and change in demographics brought challenges, but also brought opportunities that inspire us to stretch our imaginations, appreciate the richness of diversity, and grow in our image of God and Church. Our parishioners reflect the dynamic, diverse, and welcoming posture that expresses our Catholic faith at its best with people from several countries in Central and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, new migrants from Europe, Asia and the Pacific. We are a community of many cultures, colors, and languages.

We look forward to you joining us for worship and are excited that you are considering making the parish of Incarnation – St. James your spiritual home to grow in faith and witness to the gospel.
