St. James Faith Formation

Lifetime of Discovery!

St. James and St. Mary's Faith Formation Programs

  • To all Students that are preparing to make their 1st Holy Communion please make sure to turn in a copy of your Baptismal certificate to the St. James Catholic Church parish office, if you were not Baptized in the Catholic Church of St. Mary's or St. James. If we do not have a copy of your child's Baptismal certificate they will not be allowed to make their 1st Communion.
  • All students preparing for Confirmation make sure to finish  your Saint report and Bishop's letter. Get creative in meeting with your sponsor, do a video chat, skype, face time etc.
  • If you have any questions or concerns please contact Janet Durheim at 507-375-3542 ext. 204


 Registration Information  

  • Please register your child for FF classes. Registration forms can be found in the main entrances of both churches or you can pick up a registration form at the St. James Parish Center.
  • If your child needs to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, 1st Holy Communion, or Confirmation and are not registered in our faith formation program please contact Janet Durheim at: 507-375-3542 ext. 204.
  • Remember if there is bad weather and school closes for the day or releases the children early due to bad weather, all Faith Formation classes will be canceled.


                                 Volunteers Needed !!!                                                                                                          

We are always in need of teachers or volunteers for Faith Formation. We need individuals that will volunteer as classroom helpers, help the children learn their prayers and to help monitor the children when classes are let out. There is a lot of excitement in the parking lot and extra sets of eyes would help ensure the safety of the children. If you are able to help with any one of these please contact Janet Durheim at 507-375-3245 ext. 204
