MISSION STATEMENT: St. Charles Catholic Community is a family of faith, recognizing and affirming the love of God in ourselves and in one another. We are called to continue the mission of Christ: In reaching out to those in need physically, emotionally, and spiritually; in teaching the word of God in words and action; in celebrating the love of God in the Sacraments and worship; and in strengthening one another with our faith, stories, lives, joy, encouragement, and prayers.

“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?” JOHN 6:9
The miracle of the Loaves and Fishes carries two important messages. First, no matter how little we have, we always have enough to share. Second, Christ can take our humble gifts and do great things with them if we are just willing to let Him. Nothing is impossible with God. All of our gifts, big or small, were given to us for a reason. No gift is too small or insignificant!
