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.
