Minister for the Sick
The parish has been asked by Banner Boswell Medical Center to assist in the ministry to the sick. This will help relieve St. Clement of Rome’s ministers of some of their overwhelming participation with Catholic patients. Chaplain Larry at Boswell will train if necessary. Please contact parishioner Karen Euliana at 623 776-0880 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
164 students have been registered for the Sacramental Preparation Program, Faith and Life. Classes will begin Wednesday, September 16 at 6:00 p.m. Parents and children are asked to gather in the church for a presentation of the Called to Protect Safe Environment class, introduction of catechists and assistants, and room assignments.
Father Gonzales will be joining his fellow priests in Convocation at Little America Inn in Flagstaff, AZ Monday through Friday, September 14 through 18. No Masses will be offered at St. Charles that week.
The choir of St Charles is in need of need more female and male voices. Also, the help of anyone who can play the piano or organ would be very useful. Experience is not needed.
Please Pray for the Sick

A heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone who contributed a bit extra last week. The additional funds helped us stave off the hungry jaws of a bad economy. The parish needs $4000 per week to stay in the black.
