Religious Staff

Each of us is called to be a Gospel Witness; for many, this witness is shown outwardly by a religious vocation.

At St. James, we are fortunate to have several priests and sisters who work daily to bring the joyful message of the Resurrection to all in our community. 


We are blessed to have Sister, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary serving in our parish and school. 

Sister Mary Sue Carwile, Principal & Superior of St. James Convent

Sister Regina Rosarii McLallen, IHM, Director

Sister Helen Delores Gilroy, School Office Assistant 

Sister Melissa Mastrangelo, 7th & 8th Grade Teacher

Sister Patricia Healey, School Librarian

"In the hidden recesses of the human heart the grace of a vocation takes the form of a dialogue. It is a dialogue between Christ and an individual, in which a personal invitation is given. Christ calls the person by name and says: "Come, follow me." This call, this mysterious inner voice of Christ, is heard most clearly in silence and prayer. Its acceptance is an act of faith."
