The Rev. Jim Neuburger

assisting priest, retired

Fr. Jim was raised in the upper Midwest, and since his father worked for GM he in Missouri, Kansas, Indiana and Michigan, where he attended eight schools in twelve grades. While he was at the University of Notre Dame he met Carol. “Greatly smitten by her beauty”, he pursued her through their undergraduate years, marrying shortly after graduation. 

Prior to his ordination Fr. Jim worked with State Farm Insurance Company and Policy Management Systems Corporation in Columbia, serving in various positions in marketing, customer service, and sales. Fr. Jim and Carol are blessed to have their three children and two grandchildren live nearby,

How did Fr. Jim end up in the priesthood? He explains, “You can run, but you can’t hide from God. For over thirty years I had been running from committing my life to Him. Finally, twelve years ago, God, in His loving pursuit, ran me to ground. It is only through the miracle of hindsight that we can see how God works out His purpose for our lives. Our responsibility is to trust in His goodness and keep putting one foot in front of the other, even though we don’t fully know where we are going to end up.”  

“God’s love has brought us to His community at St. Simon & St. Jude, and we are the more blessed for it. We look forward to our journey together as we travel deeper into the heart of God.”
