Many churches celebrate the day before Ash Wednesday, Mardi Gras (French for Fat Tuesday, also called Shrove Tuesday), by eating up everything in the house that is inappropriate to eat during Lent. We observe this day with a Pancake Supper held in the coffee hour area with a cost of $3.00 per person or $12.00 for a family.
Bring your own toppings as an expression of “eating up everything good in the house” prior to Lent. We provide maple syrup, margarine, ham, and sausage.
Ash Wednesday-March 1,March 8 10:30am & 7pm
The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, when a Priest marks the foreheads of Christians with ashes as a reminder that we are created from dust and to dust we shall return.
Ash Wednesday is a somber day of reflection on what needs to change in our lives if we are to be fully Christian

St. Charles Rummage Sale
Ok ladies and gentlemen, it's that time again for the soon to be famous St. Charles Rummage Sale! We’re giving you plenty of time to get your items together, so here is your BIG chance to clean out the stuff stuffed in the rafters, in the storage unit, garage, under the beds and I could go on. Get your boxes and items together! Ask you friends and neighbors if they have things they’d like to donate.
Bishop Kevin has granted a special dispensation to hold the Rummage Sale during Lent. Consider your giving an act of penance.
is the big day! So let's get ready and GO. Like last time we will be taking items in the week before! Let's make it a GREAT Sale for a GREAT Cause….our Capital Campaign Fund. Last year we raised over $2,000.00.
Blessings, Dena Jones
