All Saints' and All Souls' Day schedule

posted Oct 27, 2014, 2:39 PM by Brian Suda   [ updated Oct 27, 2014, 2:39 PM ]

All Saints' Day, Saturday November 1, celebrates the lives of all Christians who have died in a state of grace. While it is normally a holy day of obligation, since it falls on a Saturday, the obligation to attend Mass is lifted in the US and some other countries. We will have one Mass for All Saints' Day at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 1, for those who wish to attend. We will not have our usual first Saturday Mass for the Faithful Departed. They will be remembered during the weekend Masses for All Souls' Day, on November 2, including the Saturday 5 p.m. vigil Mass on November 1 and all Masses on Sunday November 2.

Fall bereaved support group starts

posted Oct 21, 2014, 4:57 PM by Steve McGlone   [ updated Oct 27, 2014, 2:25 PM by Brian Suda ]

What: New support group for those suffering loss 
When: End of October with exact dates and times determined based on the needs of the participants 
Where: At the parish, with exact location determined based on size 

St. Charles Borromeo Parish offers a bereaved support group for parishioners who have lost a loved one. If you, or a family member, are in need of support surrounding your grief journey, we invite you to Learning to Manage Your Grief: A Small Group Experience. Support groups offer participants opportunities to heal, grow and become more whole. Learning from others and sharing insights makes what seems impossible to handle more manageable. This five-session program will combine the use of a workbook and videos along with the sharing of common experiences. Everything spoken within the group is confidential providing a safe environment for you to work through your grief.

It's easy! 
  1. Email rstocks@stcharlesb.org to be scheduled for one or two weekends a month and to get your greeter name tag(s). 
  2. Be at your assigned door at least 15 minutes before and 10 minutes after Mass. 
  3. Greet each person that comes to church. Offer a friendly smile, "good afternoon" and open the door. If necessary, ushers are available to answer questions. 
  4. After Mass greet everyone again. Thank them for coming. Personally hand out a bulletin and invite them to coffee and doughnuts (if offered). 
This is  a perfect ministry for families who want to get more involved or for someone who has always been interested in volunteering!
