Welcome to Our Lady of Charity! As a Roman Catholic Parish we strive to bring people to a closer encounter with Jesus through all that we do. Our Parish welcomes the stranger, the outcast, the forgotten and encourages all in their growth as disciples. Please know that you are always welcome here, and I hope you avail yourself of the many opportunities to grow in your personal relationship with Jesus at our parish. God Bless and Keep Smiling :)

Become a Virtual SummerFest Sponsor! 

This year, we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Our Lady of Charity Parish. Who would have ever imagined the changes we have seen in our world these last couple of months? And, although we have been experiencing a pause in our lives, the needs of our parish have not.

The SummerFest Committee has made the decision to “Re-Imagine” this year’s event scheduled for July 25, 2020. The health and safety of the festival attendees, volunteers, and the vendors who participate is our number one priority so we are planning to celebrate our event in a different way this year. It is our hope to have a drive-thru Chiavetta’s Chicken dinner, online basket auction, and a virtual performance from The Boys of Summer, featured on Facebook Live allowing us a chance to celebrate together.  I am pleased that our SummerFest committee decided again this year to ask for corporate sponsorships.
