The purpose of St. James Youth Ministry (SJYM): to be missionaries for the hearts of young people.  We are led, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to create life-giving, joy-filled, merciful encounters with the person of Jesus Christ.  Through this communion with Jesus, we draw close to each other, the St. James parish family and the communities we have been chosen and called to witness to a hope that lasts.  We rely on the inspiration and the teachings of the Catholic Church so that a young person can make a confident decision to be a life-long disciple.


Cost: $255 inc. retreat fees, meals, lodging & t-shirt.

Sacrament of Confirmation

Confirmation preparation is a two-year process within the high school years. This two-year formation process is based on the principles set forth in the National Conference of Catholic Bishops’ document Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry. Our Confirmation process is not only preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, we focus on the importance of youth becoming active members of their Catholic Church Community.

2019-2020 Confirmation Program:
This year our program will meet every first and third Tuesday from October 1, 2019 to May 19, 2020 from 7:00PM to 8:30PM. Confirmation candidates will also be asked to attend Sunday Mass at 6:00PM, followed by youth night from 7-8:30PM.
