Living Faith

Jesus is the reason for our school.

At Saint James, our Catholic identity goes beyond daily religion class; it influences everything we do. We are blessed with the presence of the School Sisters of Christ the King. Their love for God makes a deep impact on our students.

  • Our students attend mass twice weekly, attend Benediction weekly, and have access to Confession at least once a month.
  • We begin and end each day in prayer and pray the Angelus at noon.
  • Priests and sisters visit every class weekly for a religion lesson.
  • Each classroom has a crucifix, Marian statue, and prayer table decorated for the liturgical season.
  • We include prayers, sacrifices, and service projects during Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter.
  • Our second graders spend the year preparing to receive First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
  • Our fifth graders attend the annual diocesan vocations day to learn about priesthood and religious life.
  • Our seventh graders travel to Washington D.C. for the March for Life.
  • Our eighth graders study The Theology of the Body for Teens.

 We hope that our students go forward with a strong knowledge of God and the desire to share His love.
