Education Opportunities for Adult Catholics

St. James provides special opportunities throughout the year for adult Catholics to grow in their faith.  These include special offerings in Advent and Lent, and a variety of other events throughout the year.

Returning Catholics... the Welcome Back Program

If you are a Catholic who has been away from the Church, and are thinking about returning, we would be happy to hear from you.  St. James Cathedral offers "Welcome Back," a parish program designed to help people return to the sacraments and to regular church attendance.  This special program is held several times throughout the year.  For more information, click here to visit the Welcome Back page.

Becoming Catholic... the RCIA Program

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process of initiation into the Catholic Community of Faith. The program provides religious education, faith formation and sacramental preparation for people seeking Baptism in the Catholic Church or full communion with the Catholic tradition through Profession of Faith, reception of Eucharist and Confirmation.  Click here to visit the RCIA page.

Children and Youth

Children’s Faith Formation for young people ages 3-17 includes weekly classes and Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the school year as well as special youth celebrations throughout the year.  Visit the Cathedral Kids' Page for more information. 

Young Adults

St. James Cathedral Young Adults Ministry is for Cathedral Parishioners between the ages of 21 and 35. The focus of our group is to develop fellowship through service, social and educational opportunities planned throughout the year. Our goal is to broaden our faith, together, as peer members of St. James, and to explore, examine and develop an increased understanding of the issues important to young Catholic adults. And, above all, our purpose is to provide fun, enriching ways to foster active participation within the Cathedral community. For information, contact Andrew Braley.
