  • Happy New Year    Happy New Year!

    As we close this liturgical year, and with Advent begin a new year, let us give thanks for our wonderful parish community and together prepare for the rebirth of Jesus in our hearts, our lives, our families, and in our St. Charles Community!

    St. Charles Parishioners enjoyed a wonderful year of ministries, events, and celebrations. 

    St. Vincent de Paul, Senior Luncheon, Prayer Shawl Group, Men's Club, Women's Club, Home & Hope, Teen Groups, Religious Education, Scripture Camp, Parish Festival, and St. Charles School name just a few of our gathering & growing opportunities! 

    Please enjoy these photos from selected events, beginning with our Senior Lunch members who served in the military and including the Mexico Mission Trip and the 90th Anniversary celebration!

  • May we grow together in this new year, through the Holy Spirit, the Holy Family, and Christ our Savior!

    A small, but dedicated group meets in the Parish Center Chapel at 6:30 AM Monday through Thursday.  We begin each day with the Psalms and the daily Scripture readings. Please in as we lift our voices in prayer to start the day.

  •   In prayer we connect with God through the Spirit. There are several locations at St. Charles that provide a prayerful environment, formalized prayer, or contemplative silence:

    Parish Chapel, Blessed Mary's Grotto, Blessed Sacrament Chapel, Church
