EXPLORE Mass & Confession


Mass

“I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.”  John 6:51

“The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself…. The liturgy of the Word and liturgy of the Eucharist together form one single act of worship; The Eucharistic table set for us is the table both of the Word of God and of the Body of the Lord.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1324, 1346.

The celebration of the Mass, at which Jesus nourishes us with his Word and with his Body and Blood, is the center of our parish life. Mass is offered on Sundays and daily according to the schedule below.

The Masses celebrated at St. Charles Parish may also be offered for your intentions – for any person or persons, living or deceased – and we have beautiful Mass cards available. To have a Mass offered for someone, please contact the parish office. The suggested stipend (donation) is $10.
