Altar Servers Wanted

Any St. Charles parishioner in 4th grade or above in the 2021-2022 school year who has received First Holy Communion may become an altar server at St. Charles Parish. Serving at the altar is a great way for a young person to grow in faith because our faith is strengthened through prayer and service within a community of believers. The experience of serving provides the opportunity for a young person to participate in the Eucharist actively, fruitfully, and with a greater awareness of the presence of the Lord in the celebration of the Mass. Please pick up a registration form at the greeters table at church or download a copy here and return it to Fr. Forlano by June 10th. Two one-hour training sessions are required for new servers. The first training session is scheduled for Monday, June 14 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 19 at 9:00 a.m. in the church. Second sessions will be offered Monday, June 21 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 26 at 9:00 a.m. Please see the registration form for details. After being trained, new servers will be incorporated into the next schedule which begins in July and will be teamed with more experienced servers. All current servers are asked to fill out the registration form as well to confirm and/or update his or her contact information. If you are already an altar server but have not served in the last year because of the pandemic, please sign up for training again. If you have any questions please contact Fr. Forlano at 215-638-3625 ext. 726 or via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Message From Our Pastor / Mensaje de Nuestro Párroco

Corpus Christi - The Mystery of the Mass and the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist


Dear St. Charles Family and Friends,

Today, on Corpus Christi, the Solemnity in which the Church meditates on the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist - that Jesus gives us his Body and Blood and unites us with the saving event of the Cross at every Mass, I share this short video entitled, "The Veil Removed" which provides a beautiful meditation on what happens at the Mass.  Please follow this link to view the video.
The fruits of the Eucharistic celebration are extended and made available to us when we come to pray before the Blessed Sacrament.  Eucharistic Adoration which has been taking place during the pandemic every Wednesday in the main church at St. Charles will now take place in the Adoration Chapel attached to the vestibule of our church.  The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed after the 6:45 a.m. Mass (8:00 a.m. starting June 14 - August 28) and adoration will conclude at 8:00 p.m. with Benediction.  Please come and spend time with our Lord!
Thank you for all of your prayers and support during the pandemic.  I am happy to see many more people returning to the in-person celebration of the Mass.  I invite you to come back and be renewed in your relationship with the Lord.  Nothing compares with "being there".  It is the sign of love.  A bodily presence matters and makes all the difference in the world.  That is what we celebrate on this Solemnity and how we give thanks and express our love to God.
In Communion,

 Fr. Forlano
