“Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”  Mt 25:40

“The Church’s love for the poor... is a part of her constant tradition.  This love is inspired by the Gospel of the Beatitudes, of the poverty of Jesus, and of his concern for the poor.  Love for the poor is even one of the motives for the duty of working so as to be able to give to those in need.  Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2444

St. Charles Parish shows love for our needy neighbors through a variety of corporal works of mercy:

  • Jail Ministry

  • ESOL
  • Health Fair
