Remembering our Religious Liberty on Independence Day, July 4th.

St. James L.I.F.E will end the Fortnight for Freedom with a special rosary that will take place in front of school on July 4th after 8:30 am Mass.  This rosary to defend our religious freedom will be our public witness of prayer to our community. We ask that everyone who will attend, to meet us at 9:30 am in front of school.  It is our hope that we have a lot of people participating in this rosary, youa re encourage to bring your own rosaries, but we will have a giant rosary for many people to hold as they pray the rosary.  Even though praying this rosary will not last longer than 30 minutes, it will be a powerful witness to our selves and others to protect our religious freedom!
