St. James Catholic Church has been a fixture in Seguin for over 130 years, serving the Catholic population in the Guadalupe County area alongside Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. Our elementary school is the oldest facility still being utilized as a school in the state of Texas and serves 200 students in Prekindergarten – 8th grades. We have over 905 registered families and are a part of the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

With a rich and growing population, the community of St. James has over 40 ministries to support the church and the community at large. These ministries include Catholic Daughters of the Americas, St. Ann’s Circle, Life Teen and Edge youth ministries, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, Seguin A.C.T.S., Religious Education, and much more.

All of these ministries and the day to day operations are under the direction of Pastor Msgr. Dennis Darilek and our Parochial Vicar Rev. Gregory Nevlud. Our two priests are supported by full-time and part-time staff.

We invite all Catholics to come celebrate Eucharist with us at any of our weekday and weekend Masses. With a convenient Mass schedule of Saturday 4 p.m. Mass and three Sunday Masses at 8 a.m., 10:15 a.m., and 12:15 p.m., we surely have a time best for you. (Please click here for our new Mass schedule starting May 19th.)

Whether you’re Catholic or curious, you will find a home in St. James Catholic Church of Seguin.
