Dear St. Charles Family,
St. Augustine said that we are Easter People and Alleluia is our song! As we conclude the Holy Week journey of the death and resurrection of Jesus, we are filled with awe at the unbelievable event that a human being rose from the dead. He is indeed alive! Be joyful in sharing the Good News of the Resurrection! Be confident in the promise that we too will follow Jesus to new life! Happy Easter!

Tuesday Communion Service
We are discontinuing the Tuesday Communion Service. The Catholic Church created Communion Services to replace the Mass on Sundays when a priest is not available. It really isn't meant for weekdays.
Also, here at St. Charles we have only one priest. Fr. Jerry needs at least Monday and part of Tuesday for time to rest and recuperate. Most of us have two days off on the weekend. The Church would rather us no replace the weekday Mass with a Communion Service. Therefore, after Easter, the Weekday Mass schedule is as follows: Wednesday through Friday, 7:00 AM.
Please be considerate: don't use your phone during Mass
Unless your are expecting a text message or a phone call directly from God, please refrain from using your cell phone during Mass. Wa ask that you silence your cell phones AND put them away during Mass. Thank you!
