When you bring your child to the church to receive the Sacrament of Baptism, you are given the opportunity to reflect on the great gift we have in this sacrament. If you view your child's Baptism as an important event, you will almost certainly discover a renewed appreciation of your own Baptism. This is a time when we are able to experience once again God's great parental love for us and how He asks us to pass that on to our children by giving them life and the grace of Baptism.
Whether this is your first child or your fifth, preparing for the Sacrament of Baptism is a very special and holy time for you and your family. The people of St. Charles Borromeo parish share your joy and look forward to welcoming your child into the family of God and His church.

First Holy Eucharist Preparation
"Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation that are all intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is "sealed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service of the Body of Christ."1 full text here
Here at St. Charles Borromeo we strive to equip our students with the knowledge and love needed to carry forth their faith past Confirmation. Currently we are using the Chosen program from Ascension Press.

Congratulations to you as you announce your engagement to marry. Your marriage within the context of the Catholic Church is much more than a civil ceremony that happens to take place in a church building. Your marriage is a very specific vocation through which you live out your baptismal commitment to love as the Lord loves you. The Church understands your vocation as one of the seven sacraments of the Church, the Sacrament of Christian Marriage. As husband and wife in the Lord you reveal the Lord’s love to the Church and to the world by the way you love each other. Of course, this does not happen all at once. For many couples it can take fifty years, and for others that is just a starting point. Your preparation for marriage is not just something you do in the few short months before your wedding day. Hopefully, what happens during your engagement will continue throughout your marriage, namely, learning how to love each other more day after day.
A Healing Mass is held at St. Charles Borromeo twice a year; once in the Spring and once in the Fall.
Watch the Bulletin for information regarding the next Mass of Healing.
