Religious Education

Welcome to St. Charles Parish! We are thrilled that you are interested in learning more about your Catholic Faith!  

Baptism:

For baptizing your infant child, there is parental preparation required.  For adults (and youths not attending St. Charles School), there are required Rites of Christian Initiation (RCIA) Classes to be taken that include the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist, beginning in the fall and culminating on Easter Vigil. Please contact Fr. Tom at our Parish Office to arrange a meeting with him to discern your path. 327-9573 ext. 18

Marriage:

Our Diocese policy is to begin preparation for a Catholic wedding ceremony at least four months before the desired wedding date. Please contact Fr. Tom at the Parish Office to plan your wonderful Vocation of Marriage. 327-9573 ext. 18.

Sacraments of Communion and Confirmation:

There are required Rites of Christian Initiation (RCIA) Classes to be taken that include the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist, beginning in the fall and culminating on Easter Vigil. Please contact Fr. Tom at our Parish Office to arrange a meeting with him to discern your path. 327-9573 ext. 18

Coming Back to The Catholic Church:

If you are a Catholic who has been Baptized, Confirmed and received Holy Communion, but have drifted away from the Catholic Faith, the way to return is through the Sacrament of Penance. Please attend Reconciliation before taking the Eucharist at Mass. See the Mass Schedule tab to see when Reconciliation is being held. Contact Fr. Tom if you would like to get resources on learning more about your Catholic Faith.
