Faith formation

The Faith Formation programs offered at Holy Redeemer - St. James the Less are focused on strengthening each person's personal relationship with God while participating in a Sacramental life with a community that prays, worships and serves together. 

  • Whole Family Catechesis

    Our Parish Families are invited to grow together in faith on the First Sunday of each month. We gather at Holy Redeemer's Healy Hall beginning at 8:30 AM with a light breakfast and then have a family lesson led by a team of volunteer catechists focused on faith topics relevant to family life. We close by attending Mass together at 10:00 AM. Whole Family Catechesis is a part of our Families of Faith program but is open to all families in the parish!

  • Children's Liturgy of the Word

    Join us for Children’s Liturgy!

    Who: Children TK–6th Grade

    What: The Children’s Liturgy of the Word is a Parish Program where children are invited to the Sacristy during the Liturgy to celebrate God’s Word in an age appropriate way. Children will participate in themed activities and discussions related to the readings.

    Where: Saint James The Less Parish

    When: Sundays at 8:30am Mass (September 2019 through June 2020)(No class first Sundays of every month due to Family Mass at Holy Redeemer at 10am).

    Children’s Liturgy is led by two trained leaders and one to two Virtus trained parent volunteers every week. Virtus Training is a mandatory certification course, which is part of the Safe Guarding the Children Program for adults over 18, who participate in Church and School programs.

    If you are interested in leading or assisting Children’s Liturgy a few times a year or more, please contact Trish Swords by emailing or calling the parish office at (818) 249-2008.
