Greeter ministry kick-off rescheduled

posted Apr 14, 2014, 3:02 PM by Steve McGlone   [ updated Apr 14, 2014, 3:05 PM ]

What: Greeter Ministry Kick-Off--Rescheduled 
New Date: 7 p.m.; Thursday, April 24th 
Where: Convent.  

This is a great way for those who have never been involved in ministry at St Charles to JOIN us!  This is also a way for families to be involved in ministry together.  New parishioners often comment on the many ways our parish welcomed them--our Welcome Weekends and gift bag, welcome letter from Fr. Mike and the welcome packet, personal phone calls, and invitations to share a meal and learn about the parish.  The Greeter Ministry will enhance that existing program and we invite you to help us.

Would you like to set your faith on fire?

Feel cold? Or maybe just smoldering? This is your chance to experience "Catching Fire, Becoming Flame" during the weeks of Lent (March 5–April 16).
 
"Catching Fire, Becoming Flame" is a book and DVD series that provides you the tools and kindling to prepare for the spark of God in your life and then shows you how to fan it into flame until you are set ablaze. The book and DVD glow with time-tested wisdom as an experienced spiritual director shares the secrets of the saints. Your small group will function like a personal, spiritual retreat.

Sign up for a small group study! Meet other parishioners. Light your faith on fire!

Please see the attached registration form. You will be contacted with more information on the group you registered for.
