3 years in the making, St. Charles is featured in this week’s episode of the Emmy-winning documentary series “City of Churches”.
For Lent, take some time out of your busy schedule for prayer with Jesus at the Church:
Eucharistic Adoration: Monday-Friday from 9 am to noon – come by anytime in the morning for a few minutes or an hour of quiet prayer and meditation.
Taize Prayer Group: Mondays at 7:30 pm – ecumenical group meditation
All are welcome!
Fr. Ed was featured on the show “Currents” on Ash Wednesday.
Fr. Ed and the parish staff distributed ashes to over 900 people throughout the day on Ash Wednesday. In addition to masses at St. Charles, we were at the DUMBO Arch in the morning.
On October 28, 12 new members were welcomed into our community in Baptism. This was the largest number of baptisms ever held at St. Charles at one time: according to Fr. Ed, the previous record was 11 in the late 1800’s. Congratulations and blessings for them, their families and their new godparents. All photos by Guy Noe.
Learn how truly Living the Eucharist can enrich your life
The Lenten Season will begin in a few weeks. Last year, we held a series of small discussion groups during the six weeks of Lent entitled “Awakening Faith”. This program sought to enrich our journey of faith by sharing our perspectives about the Church in prayer and honest acceptance. Over 75 people participated in the series. The program was so well-received that many of those participating asked that a similar program be offered again during this year’s Lenten season. We will build on the Awakening Faith experience this year with a discussion series that focuses on the Mass and the Eucharist.
You are invited to join your fellow parishioners in “LIVING the EUCHARIST”. The goal of the program is to help each participant experience the Mass in a more powerful and meaningful way – by getting to know, understand, and love Jesus more deeply through the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Small groups will meet once a week; several sessions will be offered throughout the week that can fit your schedule.
To effectively run the program, we are in need of 10 parishioners who would be willing to serve as co-facilitators – two facilitators for each group. The additional time commitment required for a facilitator over and above a regular participant will be very minimal. A brief orientation for all facilitators will be provided prior to the start of the program.
If you are interested in serving as a group facilitator or to participate in the program, please RSVP online here. We are grateful for your contributions of time and talent to help each other on our journey of faith at St. Charles.
