Special Devotion:  Rosary is prayed Monday-Friday 6:25 am in the chapel.

Sacrament of Penance:  Saturdays, 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm in the chapel and by "Appointment."

Baptism:  Parents are required to attend a preparation class prior to a child's baptism.  We urge parents and godparents to attend this class 'before' the birth of the child.  Both godparents should be catholic.  Please call the parish office to schedule an appointment.

Sacrament of Marriage:  Our policy requires that an appointment be made with a priest at least six (6) months prior to ones wedding.  'DO NOT' set a final wedding date prior to initial interview.  One must be a 'registered' member of St. James for at least six months. Marriage preparation will require attendance at an Engaged Encounter, Sponsor Couple or special classes with a priest.  In cases of long-standing marriages contracted outside the Catholic Church, these may be validated or “blessed” after a simpler preparation.
