St. James Youth Group:  Interested in growing your faith with like-minded teens. Come to one of our youth events. Check the Sunday bulletin for happenings. We have events about 6 times a year, or better yet contact our youth minister, Nic Kovatch. In January, we do a west side volleyball league with other west side parishes. It is a lot of fun, so be sure to get on our email list by emailing Nic Kovatch at or calling 741-5325.  Want the youth group to plan an event, let us know.  I can always use more VIRTUS® trained adults willing to volunteer their time to make sure all our events can continue to happen.
