Welcome to Saint Charles

We have entered into the church’s new liturgical calendar — Happy New Year to us!!! Advent is here, a season on waiting and preparing for the “coming” or “arrival”, known as Christmas, the birth of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Simultaneously, Pope Francis designated December 8, 2015 to open the Year of Mercy in conjunction with the 15th anniversary of the closing of Vatican II and the celebration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The Pope’s message is proclaiming that mercy is the key to the church’s continuing renewal in this “new era of her history.”

Thus, let us focus our thoughts of mercy to fill our minds and to let mercy grow in our hearts, by coming to the help of others out of a sense of divine relationship. Let us wait for people and nations on earth to grow into the kind of relationship with each other that will encourage mutual respect and love, instead of hatred and war. Our mission is to bring about the Kingdom of God.

Our Parish invites you to the various activities during this month:

  • The Parish Christmas Party is on December 5, Saturday at 6pm at the Parish Hall. Tickets can be purchased at the Parish Office.
  • The Filipino tradition “Simbang Gabi”, and the Hispanic tradition “Posadas”, both a 9-day novena, starts on December 15.
  • A 9-day novena for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe starts on December 3 and ends on December 12 with a Mañanita at 5am followed by a Mass at 6am.
  • The Youth Ministry will be sponsoring the “Gift-Giving Tree”. Get your “star” and make a child happy this Christmas.

May the blessed and holy Season of Advent bring peace, joy, and warmth in your heart and home!!!
