RETREATS

St. James Academy exists to pass on the Catholic faith to the next generation. As part of our curriculum, students are taken on an overnight retreat once a year with their class. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about our faith, practice prayer, and grow in community.

NOVENA BEFOE RETREATS

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work may all be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I may love all that is holy. Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy. Amen.
