Dear parishioners,

Welcome to our online guide to St. James’ ministries and activities!

We hope you’ll find this an easy and accessible way to find information about the parish and about all the organizations and events that make St. James the vibrant and welcoming parish that it is.

This directory is intended to be used especially during our annual parish renewal process each spring. The annual renewal is a key part of our Growing in God’s Grace stewardship initiative, which highlights our response to all the gifts that God has given us!

That response comes through what we call the Four Doors to God’s Grace. Those four are the Door of Worship, the Door of Spiritual Growth, the Door of Service, and the Door of Treasure. See the Four Doors to God's Grace tab on this site to learn more about the doors, and for some inspiring words of witness from your fellow parishioners.

As part of this annual renewal process, we ask all adults in each parish household to pray about their involvement in the parish and to fill out an Annual Renewal Form to become active – or more active – in parish life. We hope you utilize the Ministry Directory on this site to learn more about the ministries and to contact the ministry leaders if you have questions.

There are other ways to find this information. Each spring a Ministry and Talent Resource Directory is mailed to each home. The main parish website also contains much of this information year-round.  Use whichever format works best for you.

As for the Annual Renewal Form I mentioned, you can fill out and submit a form electronically on this site.  If you prefer the traditional paper forms, they will be mailed to you in April, and they can be returned on Commitment Weekend, April 28-29.

Again, we hope you find this new site useful as you review your commitment to St. James. But most important, THANK YOU for your witness to stewardship and all it means to our parish.

Many blessings to you!
