P3 (Prayer, Penance, and Pub)

P3 is held in the church every Wednesday night. The Blessed Sacrament is exposed at 6:30pm with time for silent prayer and Confessions following. A meditation is given by one of the priests of St. Charles at 8:00pm, with Benediction following at 8:30pm. Afterwards, fellowship continues at a local pub. Please feel free to join us for any portion of the evening.

P3 Newcomer Nights

Once a month (usually the first Wednesday), the fellowship portion of P3 takes place in the St. Charles gymnasium. A hospitality team is also present to help newcomers learn more about how to get involved in spiritual, social, and service activities at St. Charles. Please see the parish events calendar for the next scheduled P3 Newcomer Night.
