Leader Resources

Saint James is thriving parish because our ministry leaders devote so much time and effort to serving the people of God. Below are some helpful links:

  • Bulletin Submissions
    • Please note that events held at the church and school must be scheduled through the Rectory Office before a bulletin notice can be submitted.
    • Any early submission dates will be listed. Requestors are encouraged to try to send their notices at least 2-3 weeks in advance (or notify the Communications Specialist when you have a notice) to ensure your notice will be inserted.
  • Pulpit Announcements
    • Final decision on pulpit announcements is made by the pastor. Pulpit announcements are due the Wednesday before the Sunday Mass.
  • Room/Event Reservation Packet
    • Any group meeting at the school, parish meeting rooms, or church (selling or distributing items after Mass) must complete a room reservation packet for the Rectory.
      • Do not promote your meeting or event unless the Rectory has verified the time and location are available.
      • Keep the last page on cleanup guidelines for your event. Return the first three pages to the Rectory.
    • This form must be re-submitted every August for the upcoming year from September through August.
  • Ministry Scheduler Pro
  • Clean-up Guidelines Document
    • Also included in the Room/Event Reservation Packet above
  • Diocesan Office of Child Protection
  • Parish Ministry Leads in English & Spanish
