The St. Charles community believes that young people are God’s gift to the Church; a gift that calls us into ministry to, with, by and for our youth. By the grace of the Holy Spirit, we serve the youth of our parish and their families. Therefore, we empower young people to live as loving disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today, draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community and foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
