St. Charles Parish Martha & Mary Ministries
Martha and Mary of Bethany were sisters who loved and served Jesus through hospitality, prayer, attentiveness, and service. Both expressed their belief in Jesus as the Messiah for all people, and they expressed their faith in Jesus as he raised their brother Lazarus from the dead.
In serving Jesus, Martha was the busy one, planning, preparing, and serving. Mary was the attentive one, being in Jesus’ presence, listening, seeking comfort and understanding.
Martha and Mary Ministries offer hospitality, service, prayer, presence, understanding, and attentiveness to the needs of others in our parish community.
