James Bannon

Deacon

Tell us about yourself:
I was born into and raised in a family of eight in Joliet, Illinois, graduating from Catholic grade and high schools. I received degrees from Bradley and Northwestern Universities. After meeting in college, Laura and I married in 1980, moving to Arlington Heights in 1985. We have been blessed with four children and six precious grandchildren (to date!) I look forward to serving the St. James Community in the years ahead.

When did you start serving at St. James?
As a parishioner, since the late ‘80s; as a deacon, since ordination on May 13, 2013.

Why are you passionate about serving at St. James?
It is a joyful place to do God’s will!
