St. James Catholic Church and PSR program follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting Godís Children). The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our ministry. If you have any questions, please call Gail Aubuchon or Fr. Fleming at 573-438-4686.
