Attention all Confirmation Parents and Sponsors!
The Confirmation Retreat scheduled for Saturday, April 14th at St. Charles is cancelled due to the winter storm predicted for tomorrow. The Retreat will be rescheduled for a later time. Call the parish office with any questions at 616-754-4194.

Steubenville registration is open!

 YM3 will attend Steubenville Friday, July 13, through Sunday, July 15, and we’re super excited.  This year’s theme is REVEALED, and the theme verse is  1 John 4:9, “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him.”

For more information about this year’s theme and conference, check out the promo video, and the Main Campus 4 page.
The cost this year is $100 per teen, with a maximum family contribution of $250.  A nonrefundable $50 deposit is required to hold your teen’s seat, with the remaining balance due June 3.

To register your teen, please visit this link:

If your teen plans to attend Steubenville, please complete the registration process quickly, as we have a limited number of seats available.

We still have spots available for LEAD!  LEAD, or Leadership, Evangelization and Discipleship, is a life-changing week at Franciscan University where teens get the opportunity to really dig deep into their relationship with the Lord.  LEAD will take place July 9-13 at Franciscan University, and finishes with the main Steubenvilleconference.  If your teen is interested in LEAD, please have them talk to Miranda or I as soon as possible, as there is an application process that needs to be completed by March 30.

If you have any questions, please let Miranda or me know.  Your families are in our prayers!
God Bless,

Survey about Reducing Announcements and Presentations at the End of Mass

I hate announcements! How about you? Who would like to have fewer announcements and fewer presentations at Mass? If we can be confident we can accomplish effective communication through other channels, over time we can reduce announcements and presentations. See the bulletin for March 11th for the top 8 ways to keep informed on what is going on in our parish community. We want to hear from you regarding your preferred ways to receive communication in lieu of announcements and presentations by way of a survey.

Five First Saturdays

Many blessings flowed from our Pilgrimage of Five First Saturdays which we ended on September 2nd, but we also know that our Mother Mary asked us to do this devotion more than once.  We will continue our Pilgrimage of Five First Saturdays by going out to neighboring parishes.

**Schedule change for April 7th. Due to the funeral for Nena Fear at St. Joseph at 11:00 am we will not have a First Saturday Mass at St. Charles. Please consider attending the funeral Mass as an alternative. 

With the Rosary, Mass and Praying the Litany of Loreto.

Please plan to attend Reconciliation at a regularly scheduled times as there will not be confessions during these Five First Saturdays.

Looking ahead our next First Saturdays:
