Welcome to Saint James!

We are a parish of over 2800 families. Our three-time Blue Ribbon School and Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) provide Christian formation and opportunities for sacramental life including regular Mass and confession to nearly 900 children a year.  Various ministries – from liturgical to social outreach –  are supported by over 400 volunteers. We also offer a full schedule of adult formation opportunities, including scripture studies and days of reflection. 

We hope you will stop by for a visit to our beautiful church, whether for quiet prayer time or the celebration of Mass. It is the people within the church who make our community truly special, and whatever the purpose of your visit, we look forward to welcoming you.

Sister Kathryn Teresa Clemmer, IHM

Yes, we are competitive
in the educational 
environment. However, we
are unique because as
a Catholic school we 
teach the whole child: 
spiritually, academically
and morally.

Sister Regina Rosarii McLallen, IHM
Director of Religious Education 

When you say to yourself
“Where do I begin?” 
Mother Teresa advises 
us to just begin with one,
with the resources you have.
She said that if she 
had not started with just 
picking up one person, 
she may not ever have 
picked up the rest of 
the millions that she 
ended up providing for. 
Good advice, for parents
and all of us!
