Religion is not just a subject at St. James School. It is part of who we are.
Instruction, discipline, and interactions among members of the school community are rooted in Jesus’ Law of Love. Students and staff strive to live as the Body of Christ.
There are many opportunities for students to provide service to one another, to the school community as a whole, and to the broader community in which we live. Eighth grade students, in particular, are encouraged to take leadership roles in the area of service, with opportunities ranging from serving as ushers, coordinators, greeters, and other leadership roles during Mass to leading prayer in the classrooms at special times during the school year.
Prayer sustains and supports all the words and actions of the St. James School community. Our individual and communal worship of God is the foundation of all we do at St. James. We praise God with formal and informal prayer – through prayer services and spontaneous prayer – with spoken words, singing, and movement – at work, at play, and at rest. Our goal as a school community is to live our mission and strive to praise God through our words and actions.
