At St. James Academy, we believe that educating our staff, students, and school families in the teachings of the church and creating an environment where praying together and sharing our faith experiences is not only acceptable but the norm. We create an environment for young people and the wider community to grow closer to the heart of Christ.

Building a Sacred Space
In this time of physical separation from each other, we wanted to share some opportunities for our SJA community to remain spiritually united in, and even grow closer to, Jesus and His Church. We encourage you to take some time in the next few days as we all develop our new routines, to include in that routine time for you and Jesus. To aid in that time, we encourage you to even set up a sacred place in your home if space permits it. A separate space for prayer, with a crucifix, your Bible, and maybe some holy pictures or statues, could make it easier to enter into the time you set aside for Him. It doesn’t have to be a big space, even just a table and corner dedicated to Him can work. Let us come out on the other side of this closer to Him and closer as a community.
