  • Student & Family Assistance Fund (SFAF) Special Purpose Grant

    The Student & Family Assistance Fund (SFAF) Special Purpose Grant was implemented to support K-12 students and families and reduce some portion of the stress associated with their financial struggles brought on by abnormally high inflation.  Recently, our school has received this grant from the government and we will be distributing the funds to families in our school community who request assistance.  We will be giving families grocery gift cards to help with the rising cost of groceries.  If you would like to take advantage of this special grant, please email the office by Friday, January 20th and we will distribute the funds in the coming weeks to families who could use a bit of extra help.  Please send a brief email to Mrs. Dlugan at and please reference the SFAF.  We are looking forward to helping  many families with this one-time grant.

    All women are invited to join the St. James Mom’s Study Group as we unpack Pope St. John Paul II’s Letter to Women. We will gather two Wednesdays a month, from 12:30-2:30 p.m. in the St. James Church meeting room, starting on January 25th and ending on May 10th. Letter to Women is a pastoral letter that Pope St. John Paul II wrote to all women of the world in 1995, ahead of the Fourth World Conference on Women. We will be using the Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) study guide as we read through John Paul II’s beautiful teaching on the feminine genius. All women are welcome as we journey together. Join us for fellowship and a break in routine to learn alongside other women in our community. 
    Cost is $20 USD for a digital copy or $40 USD for a hard copy. For more information contact Eileen Gaudet at To learn more about Endow, visit
