Vacation Bible School - June 23 - 27 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am
Summer is quickly approaching, and so is Saint James Vacation Bible School! Each day during the week of June 23 - 27 from 9:30-11:30AM, children entering Kindergarten through Grade 4 will participate in song, listen to stories and learn lessons from Holy Scripture, create reminders of important concepts, enjoy snacks and games, and pray. Lessons will focus on knowledge of faith and the importance of Christian service to family, friends, neighbors, community and most importantly, God. The cost is $15.00 per child and registration forms are available online, in church, or in the Parish Office.
VIRTUS®-ready volunteers are needed and welcome! Adults are needed to lead groups, and to help with refreshments. This is also a wonderful opportunity for junior high and/or high school students to accumulate service hours!
Please contact us in the Religious Education Office (513.741.5335) to volunteer or for additional information. We hope to see you at this year’s Saint James Vacation Bible School! Click below for the Registration Form.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)- CLOW takes place during the 10:00 AM Sunday Mass each week (except for three Sundays - Easter, First Communion and Festival Weekend). CLOW is a wonderful opportunity during Sunday Mass for our 1st through 4th Grade parishioners to experience the Liturgy of the Word in a way that is appropriate to their age group at the same time that our other parishioners are celebrating the Liturgy of the Word in our church space. CLOW takes place downstairs in the Church Hall. When Opening Prayer at the 10:00 AM Mass is finished, the celebrant invites the children forward and, after a special blessing, the children process together downstairs to the Church Hall. Each week they are led by a group of dedicated adult and high school volunteers in hearing the Scripture Readings and a reflection, and participating in praying the Creed and the General Intercessions. The children then return to their families during the Offertory of the Mass. Children younger than the 1st Grade are welcome to join the other children for CLOW, but they must be accompanied by a parent. CLOW does not take the place of Mass, it IS part of the Mass, and enables them to participate in the Mass more fully. The coordinator for this program is Mrs. Carole Ann Yeazell (385-5163).
