“Whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” John 6:35

St. Charles Parish welcomes all who wish to learn more about Jesus and about the Catholic faith.  We invite you to explore one of the following opportunities, which can help you with your search and with your questions.


Have questions about the Catholic faith? Join us after the 10:30am Mass for coffee & donuts and a conversational exploration of faith from a Catholic perspective. No signups or RSVP required. 11:30am-12:30pm on Sundays in Room 103. 

Join the Catholic Q&A Flocknote group for weekly updates and reminders.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Would you like to explore the Catholic faith in an even deeper way? Would you like to begin the journey of entering the Church? Then you are invited to join RCIA.

The Rite of Christian Initiation is not a "sign-up" for becoming a Catholic. It is a time of no obligation, during which we pursue the Truth and the Meaning of life, answers to eternal questions, and the truths, teachings, and practices of the Catholic Church. 

The next RCIA course will begin in September 2017 and runs through Spring 2018. Classes are held each Monday evening from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Parish Center.
