Our Parishes
Welcome to the website for the Catholic Church of St. Francis de Sales and the Catholic Church of St. James, along with their affiliated programs St. Francis-St. James United School, Sandcastle Child Care Center , and the St. Francis St. James Hispanic Community (Comunidad Hispana). The churches and their programs are part of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis . The churches are located in St. Paul , Minnesota , near the intersection of West Seventh and Randolph Avenues and serve the West End area of the city.

Our School
The two parish schools merged in 1990 to form St. Francis-St. James United School, a Catholic grade school serving both Catholic and non-Catholic children in grades kindergarten through 8th grade. We have outstanding educational programs and clubs including Art Appreciation and Chess Club. Our sports teams are winners, often taking city championshship in Boys Baseball, Girls Softball, Girls Basketball and Girls Volleyball. Financial Aid is available.

Sandcastle Child Care & Preschool 
Sandcastle Child Care Center does more than just take care of children. It is really a Pre-School education and formation center for children from infants through grade school age. The program runs both during the school year and during vacation months. Government subsidies are available for those who qualify.
