St. James offers a holistic Faith Formation program that strives to meet the spiritual and intellectual needs of the children. We are currently using the Alive In Christ series by Our Sunday Visitor. Our catechists are prayerful people that have generously responded to God’s call to serve in His vineyard. We are very proud to have catechists that are faithful to the Roman Catholic Church and are dedicated to living their Faith.
Family Formation Kick Off
Attention families that are registered for the 2021-2022 K-6th grade Family Formation program:
- We will be kicking off the year on Wednesday August 25th.
- We will gather for Mass at 5:30pm followed by dinner in the hall. After dinner the students will meet with their classroom teachers while the parents participate in an orientation meeting. We look forward to seeing you all there! It will be a great year of growing in our faith!
Note: The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix has the Restored Order for the Sacraments of Initiation. This means that children should receive Reconciliation in the 2nd grade and Confirmation/First Eucharist in the 3rd grade. We are willing and able to help children finish their Initiation Sacraments and encourage them to a continued conversion to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
