Sunday Masses are in the Parish Hall at 29th and Wabash at 9:30am & 11:30am. There’s also a brief Mass every Monday through Friday at 7:30am in the rectory. We really like having students serve as readers, Eucharistic ministers, and altar servers on Sunday. Please consider serving in one of these ministries and indicate your interest on the student registration form.
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.
Graduate Students and Young Adults in their 20s and 30s
Looking for something a little different from the usual campus ministry activities? We will have a couple wine-and-cheese socials, and a single-day retreat specifically for graduate students and young adults. You can also join in the parish retreats Sept 23 & Feb 17.
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.
Our students tutor at De LaSalle High School, 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!
Bible Studies with Fr. John Edmunds, S.T.
Fr. John three-week Bible Studies on Mondays throughout the year. There are two "sections" to pick from, 1pm-2:30pm or 7pm-8:30pm. The classes are held in the rectory.
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 and VanderCook. We have monthly meetings on Sundays, along with a complimentary lunch, following the 11:30am Mass. This is a great way to get to know other Catholic students and to have a voice in the kinds of programs we offer. 2017-2018 meetings will be Aug 27, Sept 17, Oct 1, Nov 12, Jan 21, Feb 18, Mar 25, & Apr 8. Please join us!
Adult Confirmation Classes and RCIA
Are you a Catholic who never received the Sacrament of Confirmation? Are you a Catholic who has been away from the Church and would like to reconnect? Are you interested in becoming a Catholic? The sessions run October 15 through April, 10:45-11:45am on Sundays.
Eucharistic Adoration on First Fridays of the month in the Parish Hall 7pm to 10pm
Spend time in quiet reflection with our Lord, present in the Eucharist. Confession is available 7:30-8:30pm. Benediction is at 10pm.
GO HAWKS! IIT Athletics and the St James Food Pantry
The teams at IIT host drives for toiletries once a year. These are given to the homeless and needy clients of St. James Food Pantry. This is a need that is often forgotten, and food stamps cannot be used to buy toiletries. Please support the student athletes by coming to their games, and please support the needy by donating items.
