the caretakers and stewards of God's beautiful creation.

 

Bienvenido a la Iglesia Catolica Santiago
Iglesia ... no es un edificio.
Es el corazón, la mente y el espíritu de cada uno de nosotros.

Dear St. James Youth and Families,

I am so excited to welcome your child back to Lifeteen and Edge this Fall. We will be resuming our groups via Zoom this year beginning on September 8th. Please be sure your child is registered so I can distribute the appropriate materials to your family. We will be working through the book of Acts, engaging in some discussions in apologetics, and enjoying a weekly devotional. I so miss our time together but please remember that God is in control and He is faithful to us always! If there is ever anything I can do for your family please let me know. I want to pray for your specific needs and for your child. More information will be going out via email this week regarding how our Zoom meetings need to be conducted, there is a bit of a learning curve but together we can be successful.
 
In Christ,
 
Youth Director
