General Faith Formation Information
Welcome to St. James the Greater Catholic Church’s page regarding our parish’s page Faith Formation information. Here at St. James, our objective is to give every opportunity for those who encounter our religious education department to form one’s faith:  by being informed, formed and transformed.  It will be everyone’s (clergy, religious education staff, catechists, parents and students) to know, proclaim, witness and share to foster a deeper relationship with Christ and fulfill his mission and our baptismal call to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).

What do we offer?
Because faith formation is lifelong, our formation process not only begins with one’s baptism through the building up of the domestic church, but in formation classes within the parish setting to help prepare those in their sacraments along with the discipline of lifelong formation through the various grades. Here at St. James we offer Faith Formation in Adult Education, Children’s Faith Formation (PK-5), Middle School, High School Youth Ministry, Young Adult, Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC), and Step Up in Faith (sacraments for non-traditional students), along with traditional Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.
