Hannah Rothermel

Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministries

Hannah was born and mostly raised in Baton Rouge. She briefly moved to Spring, Texas with her family during her high school years, but hurried back to Louisiana as fast as she could.

She is a third-generation Episcopalian, and has worked with youth on a parish and diocesan level for five years. She is passionate about all things Louisiana, football, and music. She loves meeting new people and is excited to dive into the community of St. James. and is looking forward to meeting the lovely people of St. James and getting to know the youth!

Hannah is working toward an elementary education degree from LSU, followed by the Masters of Art in Teaching. She most recently worked as a teacher’s assistant at Trinity Episcopal Day School. She has also worked at St. Alban’s for four years where she has done just about “everything but building and grounds.”

Last Call For Confirmation Class

Posted 11 months ago by Hannah Rothermel.

Confirmation class is being offered for youth age 13 years old and above. We will meet during Sunday school hour in the Ministries Center Activity Room.   

Email Hannah Rothermel to sign up!


What is confirmation?

The book of Common Prayer defines confirmation as “the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.” A simpler definition is that confirmation is a public reaffirmation of the baptismal vows. In the past, confirmation was required by the Church to complete baptism. However, that outlook has changed, and all members who are baptized are considered full members of the Church. Confirmation is a very personal journey and exploration of faith.


The program being used at St. James is from the Book of Common Prayer in the Catechism. This program will outline the foundation of our faith. We will go through the following topics, 10 commandments (2 sessions), Sacraments (2 sessions), Trinity/creeds (2 sessions), Prayer & worship (1 session), and Sin & redemption (1 session.) The class will be taught by different priests and members of the St. James Community.


Confirmation Calendar:

2/19-Confiramtion Class 9:15-10:15

Fall 2016

Posted one year ago by Hannah Rothermel.

We had a great fall and end to 2016 in the EYC! We kicked off the semester with a pool party. In Sunday School, we learned about our call from God, where we are being led, and how to use our gifts and talents to follow His purpose for our lives. We had a great time serving with The LOT Project in downtown and having our first fun Friday hangout! We ended the semester with a fun Christmas party-filled with games and sweets. Can't wait to see what 2017 has in store for the EYC!
