A Single Serving of Service
This is a new concept for the many ministries at St. Charles Borromeo Church. There are no meetings to attend,nor does it take a large amount of time.
It consists of a One Time commitment of service for a particular ministry that would greatly benefit from your One Time involvement.
These opportunities are a way of "Doing Thanks"for the many blessings God graces us with everyday
Can you touch a prayer?Can you pull it close and feel its comfort?You can if it comes as a gift in the form of a Prayer Shawl.
Prayer Shawls are simple gifts of grace from God that are prayerfully and lovingly stitched by volunteers of St. Charles Graceful Hands and prayer over as a reminder that God's promise is always with us.
Shawls can be useful for: those undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; or for prayer or meditation. Prayer Shawls are available to anyone free of charge. Please call the parish office @ 330-758-2325 to reserve one or stop in to pick one up.
Evangelization happens when the parish community dedicates itself under the Gospel to worship and to witness, to teach and to learn, to serve and to liberate, to welcome others and to extend itself for the sake of the reign of God.
