15 March Virtual Backpack

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Confirmation Reception  The Home and School Association sponsors a Confirmation Reception after the Confirmation Mass for all of the newly confirmed and their families. Cake, cookies, and refreshments are served in the parish center following the mass. It is a tradition that the current 7th grade (and younger) families volunteer by bringing an item or helping out the night of the event. There is only one confirmation mass this year on Friday, April 21st at St. James. Please sign up to help using the link below. If you have any questions email Jill Kreikemeier at learnpraylove@gmail.com.   https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080D48A5A929A1F85-confirmation

St. James Catholic Church
The Growing in God’s Space prayer:

Heavenly Father, our hearts sing in praise of You.
All glory and honor to Christ Jesus,
Who has shown us the way to everlasting life.

O Lord, all that we have comes from You.
You have given us a home at St James
filled with faith and family.
Thank You for these many blessings.

Holy Spirit guide us in this journey.
Let us move together with open hearts.

Grant us the grace to follow in the footsteps of St. James.
Help us to work together
as we build Your kingdom here on earth.


Faith. Family. Future.
