Dear Friends,

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & YOUTH MINISTRY REGISTRATION…

…is now taking place.  Parents, please register all your children and teens for our dynamic programs for formation in our faith.  You can do so easily online: visit our website under the LEARN menu.

ADULT SACRAMENTS AND CONVERTS

We have opened registration for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (the “RCIA”):  this is for any adult Catholics who have not received all their sacraments, and for any non-Catholics who are interested in becoming Catholic.  Register easily on our website under the “LEARN” menu.

WEBSITE & OTHER MEDIA

Be sure regularly to check out our user-friendly website, and stay connected with all the good things that are happening in our parish in these ways:

  • Subscribe to our Flocknote messaging lists:

    • The St. Charles Weekly Bulletin list, where you’ll receive an electronic version of our weekly bulletin

    • The St. Charles Alerts list, where we will send out timely updates, such as parish closings or Holy Day reminders

    • The St. Charles Challenge list, with tips and reminders on embracing the St. Charles Challenge

    • Once you join any of these lists, you’ll also receive a link inviting you to peruse other parish messaging groups that you can join.

  • Follow us on social media:  Instagram, Facebook and Twitter

  • It’s easy to stay current–simply go to our website and click the links to sign up:  www.stcharleschurch.org/connect

  • You can also follow/friend me and Fr. Dyer on Instagram and on Facebook!

SUMMERTIME, AND THE LIVING IS EASY…

Summer often means a slower pace of life, more recreation and vacation–but be sure not to take a vacation from your vocation to be saint!  Encountering the Lord through daily prayer, Sunday Mass and frequent Confession should always remain the bases of our spiritual lives. When traveling, find local Mass and Confession times using this convenient website:  masstimes.org

Enjoy the Summer, and remember to put Jesus first!

I remain your servant in Christ Jesus,

Father Don
