We Believe

The beliefs of the Catholic Church were codified in the Nicene Creed in 325 A.D. You can read it here:


What Does This Mean?

We believe that there is one God in three persons. The Father created all that exists and found that it was good. The Son became human and walked this earth to reveal Himself to us, to teach us how to live, and to lead us to holiness. He suffered and died for our sins and conquered death in the Resurrection so that we might attain eternal life with Him in Heaven. Before he died, He commissioned His Apostles to continue His work. That work continues to live on today through the Catholic Church. We believe the Holy Spirit continues to live among us, especially in the seven Sacraments.

The Catholic Church educates more children than any other scholarly or religious institution through our schools at every level and welcomes people of all faiths to learn what we believe. To learn more about the programs available here at St. James, please select one of the choices below:
