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 :)
