Faith Formation

Faith formation is back in session and taking the same precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the flu as we approach flu season.

To better serve our parishioners, we are offering both in-person Faith Formation opportunities and offering activities online or by correspondence when requested.

Steps we as a ministry are taking:

  • Masks, face coverings, etc. that will cover the nose and mouth at all times
  • Temperature checks upon arrival and entering activities
  • Health questionnaire
  • Social distancing
  • Continuous sanitizing

For youth and Confirmation, please visit the St. James Youth Ministry website.

Adult Faith Formation opportunities can also be found on our Faith Formation page.


For the convenience of St. James parishioners, we now have online giving available! View this post for a tutorial to get started with online giving today.

Please don’t forget to support your church at this time. We are able to continue offering Mass and spiritual services online only with your continued support.

With this option, you can set up a one-time offering, recurring gifts, and choose to give towards certain funds St. James has set up. You can give as a guest or create an account to keep track of your tithes and set up recurring giving. This option makes giving so much easier with being able to set it and forget it, or even change the amount you give when your circumstances change!
