Dear Friends,

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & YOUTH MINISTRY PROGRAMS BEGIN THIS WEEK!
Parents, please be sure to register and to bring your children and teens for our dynamic programs for formation in our faith. Find information on our website under the LEARN menu.

CLASSES FOR CONVERTS AND ADULTS WHO NEED SACRAMENTS BEGIN THIS WEEK!
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (the “RCIA”), for any adult Catholics who have not received all their sacraments, and for any non-Catholics who are interested in becoming Catholic, begins this Monday. For more information, check out our website under the “LEARN” menu.

NEW WEEKLY PARISH SUNDAY DINNER!
Starting next Sunday (September 15), join your fellow parishioners for dinner on any Sunday upstairs at Rockland’s BBQ (on Washington Blvd.), beginning at 7:15pm. All parishioners are welcome, and newcomers are especially encouraged to join. If convenient, feel free to park at St. Charles and walk to Rocklands (but keep in mind towing begins at 11:00pm). We hope you will enjoy this informal, fun and delicious way of getting to know your fellow parishioners and celebrating the Lord’s Day!

BACK TO “SCHOOL” FOR EVERYONE: LEARNING ABOUT OUR FAITH
HAITI. Two weeks ago we had our annual appeal to support our sister parish’s schools in Haiti, providing quality education and nutrition for hundreds of needy children.

MISSION COOPERATIVE. Last weekend, we hosted Fr. Vijaya of the Pallotine order, who preached at all the Masses last weekend about their missionary work.

THANKS to those who have already given in support of those great works!

PLEASE GIVE if you haven’t yet!

HOW TO GIVE. You can easily give electronically through Faith Direct, using the link on our website under the “GIVE” menu.

VACAY
Having been around all Summer, I’m away on vacation this week in Spain, where my family used to live, visiting old friends. ¡Hasta pronto!

I remain your servant in Christ Jesus,

Father Don
