FLOCKNOTE

The church is implementing a new communication system that will make interaction with our parishioners easier and more effective.

The system is free, your information is secure, and you do not have to download anything or create a password in order to participate. Stay tuned for more information.

Do You Have Time, Talent Or Treasure?

Of course you do! Jesus Christ is God’s greatest gift to us. Stewardship tells us to share a portion of our time, talent and treasure so that the Gift, Jesus Christ, may be given to those who do not know Him. We would like to further explore this area of our faith at St. Charles and need your ideas! On Aug. 27th at 6 PM in the former bookstore, please come for a brief meeting to share your ideas for stewardship. If you are unable to come but want to share your ideas, or have any questions please see Jenny Brown in the office.
