Church Boys League (CBL) is a group for boys and young men between the ages of 5 and 13 years. For over 50 years, CBL has met at the St. James Parish Hall, providing its participants with skills in leadership, teamwork and good decision making. Often, past participants become leaders themselves, sharing knowledge and experience. CBL strengthens social bonds, teaches valuable life lessons, and provides a fun and safe atmosphere for boys to be themselves. Boys of all denominations are welcome to join in on weekly activities that instill values, confidence and fairness. The badge program encourages them to expand their skillset to include community service and volunteerism, safety, swimming, knot tying, pet care, environmental awareness, and much more. 

This is a list of how St. James CBL has contribited to the Parish over the years:
