Youth Ministry Mission Statement

The Mission Statement of St. James Youth Ministry is to guide our youth to answer the call of personal discipleship, evangelization and leadership, and to connect our young people to the Christian community through involvement in the life of the Church and the larger community.

The Purpose of St. James Youth Ministry is to...

  • empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
  • draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
  • nurture the personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

In collaboration with the Church Community (including families, schools, parishes, and diocese), the Goals of St. James Youth Ministry are to...

  • form young disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • provide knowledge of the Catholic Faith.
  • provide understanding of the Liturgy and the Sacraments.
  • invite a deeper understanding of the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
  • provide a moral formation in Jesus Christ.
  • teach the importance of prayer and how to pray with Christ.
  • prepare active participants in the life and mission of the Church through the sharing of time, treasures, and talents.
  • promote a missionary spirit that will be a Christian presence in society.
  • provide time, space, a caring environment, and caring professionals to address complex issues associated with living a Christian life in the 21st Century.

SCRIP Gift Card Program

To stream-line the sales process, the SCRIP program will be changing in January 2018.

• Rather than selling gift cards in the gathering space after Mass, SCRIP will now be available to purchase by completing a paper order form and placing it (along with your payment) in the collection plate during Mass or by taking it to the church office.
• Orders will be due by the 15th of each month, and gift cards will be available to pick up from the church office on or after the 22nd of each month.
• Blank order forms can be picked up in the Gathering Space, on a table outside the office.

You can use SCRIP gift cards for gift giving or for your usual day-to-day expenses such as groceries or gas. Each time you purchase SCRIP gift cards, a percentage of your purchase goes directly to St. James. Thank you for your support!!!
