St Charles Borromeo Live

Rite of Election

Congratulations to our catechumens who affirmed their intent to seek full communion in the Catholic Church at the Rite of Election during the 10:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, February 18, 2024. Please keep the children in your prayers as they prepare to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. We thank Father Forlano, Deacon Lou, Mrs. Baird, our catechists, and the parents and godparents for accompanying our catechumens on their faith journey!

Rice Bowl

Faithful from The Archdiocese of Philadelphia are once again joining Catholics throughout the country by participating in Rice Bowl, an initiative of Catholic Relief Services.
This faith-in-action program provides a tangible way to incorporate prayer, fasting, and almsgiving into our Lenten journeys. It also sheds light on our shared commitment to assist the poor and vulnerable in our region and around the world. Three-quarters of all contributions to Rice Bowl are used to provide assistance to impoverished communities overseas. The remaining 25% stays within our area and will be used by Nutritional Development Services, an agency of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, to combat hunger and food insecurity locally throughout the five-county Greater Philadelphia region.

Thank you for your support!
