Members of Religious Orders

         As we begin celebrating our 175th anniversary as a parish, we need your help. Sad to say, parishes seldom have kept records of parishioners who have entered religious orders as brother or sisters. Most of the time if a man was ordained a priest for a religious order, that was recorded in the parish. (We have the list of those ordained as priests from St. James.) But nothing was kept about those who became brothers or sisters. As part of our anniversary projects, we want to put a list together.

If you are related to someone or know somebody who was or is a member of a religious order who was a parishioner at St. James when they entered the order, please let us know. We would appreciate having information such as which order they joined, when they made final vows, are they still living (and where). If someone joined an order and left religious life we want to know that, too. Please mail this information to the parish office and be sure to include your name in case we need to contact you for additional information.
