St. James Parish supports the faith and spiritual formation of parishioners of all ages, through a variety of liturgies, classes, programs and special events. The Religious Education Office assists our pastor in organizing and leading specific faith formation events for all children and adults, and the Youth Ministry Office organizes and leads events related to high school students.


We encourage families to consider a Catholic school education for their children.
