Principal’s Welcome

Hello and welcome to St. James School!

We are a unique and wonderful school located in the friendly village of Waynesburg and serving families in the surrounding rural community. In my opinion, our school and parish are the perfect example of a living Christian community modeled after Luke’s description of the communal life in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2: 42-47).

“They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.”

The beauty of our school rests in the faith and action demonstrated by our parishioners, parents, students, faculty, and staff. The strength of our school rests in the dedication and commitment to carrying out our mission to share the Good News of Jesus life and teachings. The joy of our school rests in the fellowship among our families and the love we share, with Jesus as our model.

I invite you to call and schedule a visit so that you might see our unique and wonderful school!
