It’s time to register your children (grades 2 and up) for First Penance and First Communion. The sacraments will take place in May; exact dates and locations of classes and ceremonies will be announced at a later date. Registration forms are available at all 4 sites, on the parish website, and through the Church office. The deadline is February 15th.

Readiness for First Communion is an emotional, spiritual, and intellectual process. A child’s readiness is greatly influenced by the experience of participating in the liturgy each week with his/her family. Other readiness factors include:

  • Desire for the Sacrament
  • The ability to distinguish Eucharist from ordinary bread
  • Willingness to continue life in the community after reception of the Sacrament
  • Appropriate faith formation for a child’s age, including 2 years of consistent Parish Religious Education classes or 2 years of attendance in a Catholic School
  • Celebration of First Penance prior to receiving Eucharist
  • Registered member of the Parish

Follow Me: A Journey Through the Gospel of St. John

“Following Christ takes more than simply believing in him or doing what he asks of us. Jesus wants you to be more than just a believer—he wants you to be his disciple and friend. Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John is your guide to a personal encounter with Christ.”

Sign-up at the entrances at St. James Church.

Heavenly Father,

As we recall the Presentation of the Lord we pray for the unborn that they may see their Baptism. We implore your
help in convincing politicians to recognize the unborn as Your gifts of life.

We ask the Blessed Virgin Mary as she appeared as Our Lady of Lourdes for her continued intercession on our behalf. We solicit Your Wisdom for scientists working to eradicate disease.

We pray that we have a holy and observant Lent as we prepare for the salvation of your son, Jesus. We ask these in His name
