Grief Support Group

Have you lost a loved one?

There is a grief support group starting on May 26th at St. James.  Please join us from 7-8:30 pm once a week for 8 weeks to share memories of our loved ones and explore the stages of grief. Feel free to participate if you would like or just come and listen. The purpose is to bring the grieving process into focus, as well as to provide support for each other during this journey of sorrow and pain of loss.  If you have any questions, please call Vicki Jung at 260-2373 or Julie Schneider at 741-1194.

We will be collecting your donations of gently used clothing and household items at all Masses that weekend.  A truck will be parked in the west parking lot. Remember, items you no longer use are a blessing for a neighbor in need.  For free pickup of large donations and vehicles, call 421-CARE.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

This year St. James the Greater Vacation Bible School is scheduled on Monday through Friday, June 13-17 from 9:30 am-Noon.  Students will participate in uncovering archaeological treasures that will lead them to discovery of God's gift of Bible stories.

Children entering Kindergarten through Grade 4 will sing, dance, listen to or watch stories, and learn lessons from Holy Scripture.  They will pray, create reminders of important concepts and enjoy snacks and games.  Lessons will focus on increasing knowledge of the Catholic Faith, as well as that of the call to service of family, friends, neighbors, community and most importantly, God.  The cost is $20.00 per child and registration forms are available online (click below), in church, or in the Parish Office. 

VIRTUS ® approved volunteers are needed and welcome!  Adults are needed to lead groups, and to help with refreshments.  This is a great opportunity for junior high and/or high school students to accumulate needed service hours!

Please contact us in the Religious Education Office (741-5335) to volunteer or for additional information.  We hope to see you at this year's St. James Vacation Bible School!
