Make Your Reservation for Weekend Masses – Aug. 1 / 2

Registration for Masses at St. Charles on August 1 / 2 will close at 2:00 pm on Friday, July 31st.

NEW – RESERVATIONS FOR ST. JOSEPH AND ST. MARY WILL CLOSE ON THURSDAY, JULY 30th SO OFFICE STAFF CAN PREPARE THE RESERVATION LIST BEFORE THE OFFICE CLOSES FOR THE WEEKEND.

We will make the decision on Wednesday whether we will have outdoor Mass at St. Mary, and this weekend, at St. Joseph (due to celebrating the graduates at Mass). Check back Wednesday afternoon for the update.

Please call the parish office before Friday if you need to cancel your reservation. When you arrive at Mass you will need to check in with an Usher/Hospitality. Please see the other news post for questions about the new guidelines for attending Mass (click here to see that article ).

Good news! We will have outdoor Mass at St. Mary this weekend. Remember to bring your own chairs and to wear masks. If you are already signed up on the initial St. Mary sign up there is no need to sign up on the outdoor Mass sign up.

Music for 12th Sunday, Ordinary Time

We are making the music selections available in advance of the Weekend Liturgies.

The lack of hymnals is both inconvenient and freeing.  Feel free to print a copy of the lyrics for your personal use and bring it to Mass with you.

Each of the songs has a link to the recorded version.  We hope that you will take a minute, as you prepare for Mass, to become familiar with the music so that you can better participate.

Masses Will Begin Again May 30/31

We are happy to share that we will begin Masses again the weekend of May 30/31st.

The return to Mass will come with adjustments. Parishioners were mailed a letter from Fr. Jim with a copy of the new guidelines we must follow. A copy of the guidelines can be found in the link below. We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we all adjust to the changes we have been asked to make. Please continue to watch our website for updates.  Due to limited seating you will be asked to reserve a spot at the Mass you plan on attending. The link to make an online reservation to attend Mass will be posted on Monday mornings at 10:00 am and will close on Friday afternoon at 2:00 pm. You can also call the parish office to reserve a spot.

Scam Pretending to be Fr. Bauer

SCAM ALERT!
It appears that Father Bauer has been involved in an email and text scam. Staff members/parishioners have received emails and/or texts appearing to be Father Bauer and it is not. DO NOT REPLY TO ANY TEXT OR EMAILS before you talk to Father Bauer or parish staff directly. Your privacy and safety are always our concern.
