AUGUST VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
Our August Volunteer Spotlight is on Bob and Olga Barela. Longtime parishioners, Bob and Olga Barela are superb supporters of both our church and school. When their five children attended St. Charles, Bob and Olga were go-to volunteers, and they continue to support our school as wonderful advocates, extolling the virtues of Catholic school education and St. Charles in particular. Olga is actively involved in ministry as a dedicated Eucharistic minister and as treasurer for our Holy Name Society. Bob also serves in ministry, but of a different kind. Facing challenging health issues, Bob models for us all the spirit of peace in the face of difficulties, always ready with a smile and a kind word for everyone. Thank you, Bob and Olga, for sharing with us your devotion to your faith, to your community and to one another!
