Mission Statement of St. James

We, the Family of St James, are called by God through our baptism to be the bearer of the Good News of Jesus Christ. United in faith, and relying on the loving presence of the Holy Spirit, we are called to share in the mission of the Lord by proclaiming the Good News of Salvation through our witness, our sacramental life, our service to the community and our love for one another.



The training and the policies provide education on personal safety, detection and prevention, and on providing a safe environment for all children, youth and vulnerable adults.
