Wednesday Evening Prayer at 7pm when IIT is in Session
All are welcome to these student-led candlelight brief prayer sessions at the “God Box” on the IIT Campus.
Each Fall and each Lent, we hold a single-day retreat for college students. We also offer two single-day retreats for parishioners, and college students are welcome to join that. These are great ways to nourish your spirituality and to become more a part of the St. James Community. The Spring 2018 Retreat is on Saturday, Feb. 24th at Garfield Park Conservatory from 10AM - 3PM. To register for the retreat, click here.
Our students help in our food pantry, visit our elderly parishioners, and help with Sunday School. You don’t need to be Catholic to volunteer with us!

Become Active in the CCM Student Organization!
Catholic Campus Ministry is not just a ministry of St. James Church. It's also a recognized student organization at IIT, VanderCook and ICO. We have monthly meetings on Wednesday before Evening Prayer, along with a complimentary dinner.

Please join us!
