Thanks to all parishioners who made a commitment to the DSA! Your gift helps thousands of people throughout the diocese. Remember, it also helps our parish reach our assessed goal. If you haven’t yet made a contribution, there is still time! You can donate online at www.charlottediocese.org/dsa, by returning the pledge form that you received in the mail, or dropping a check made payable to the DSA in the parish collection.
Thank you for your generosity.

The Sweet and Savory Delights bakers concluded their most successful year ever on Saturday, August 11th. They would like to thank St. Charles for their monetary support and especially the Saturday night parishioners who generously purchased the leftover
baked goods following Mass.
A big thank you to all the wonderful cooks who prepared dishes for the potluck dinner, to the St. Charles staff and to my Parish Life Commission members for a wonderful evening. It was a great success. And a special thank you to Cecil who taught line dancing to young and old. Jo Elyn Hannah, Chair
