Evangelization

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."  Matthew 28:19

"Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize." Pope Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi

St. Charles is committed to proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, and the kingdom life available through his Passion, Death, and Resurrection, to those who do not know him. 

If you have a heart for evangelization, for seeing the lost find hope, joy, and meaning through encountering Jesus and his love, see below for ways to participate in the mission of evangelization at St. Charles, or contact Jim Schuster at jschuster@stcharleschurch.org for more information.


FORUM

Creating a culture of encounter through encounters with culture.

FORUM is a series of cultural events (music, film, lectures, dance, art, drama, etc.) that creates a space for connection with the community. Its primary goal is to show the splendor of the beauty of Christ and his Gospel through the beauty of Christian culture.

There are many opportunities to assist at FORUM events on an as-needed basis. These include hospitality, admissions, setup, decoration, bartending, cleanup, and advanced prep. If you would like to receive updates on these opportunities, click the button below to be added to the FORUM Volunteers mailing list (unsubscribe any time).

We are also looking for people who are interested in assisting in the leadership and direction of FORUM events. You can help bring the FORUM vision to life in the following ways:

  • Scheduling: assist in steering the selection of artists, presenters, and themed events that engage the human person
  • Marketing: connect FORUM with the community - especially our non-Catholic neighbors - through social media, web development, graphic design, and networking
  • Administration: help bring excellence to FORUM events by attending to the details of booking, volunteer coordination, food & beverage, and financial management

Contact Jim Schuster at jschuster@stcharleschurch.org if you are interested in serving in any of these ways.
