Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - September 19, 2021

"I'm Better Than You."   Our lives are filled with all manner of put down, one upmanship, top dog behavior.  When the disciples were caught in a similar conversation by Jesus, their response was silence.  Perhaps, from embarrassment, even shame - especially after his teaching.  He says to them and to us, be last not first, be of service, be open to receive.  




St. Charles

St. Theresa Bingo News - Bingo is Sunday, Oct. 10th.  Help will be needed in the kitchen and other areas for the bingo.  Call Josephine McCowen at 231-1714 for more information and to volunteer.  Desserts and special cakes for the lunch and raffle and baskets for the basket raffle will also be needed.  Please bring desserts and baskets on Oct. 10 to the KC Hall any time after 9 AM.  


Our Appreciation to James Szperra and His Family  --  While we continue to pray for the happy repose of the soul of our dear Mary Szperra, and god's comforting grace on her family we thank Jim Szperra and his family for the donation of $5,250.00 to St. Charles Borromeo Church and $60.00 to the Cemetery Fund in memory of Mary Lynn Szperra.  May God bless you for including the well-being of our parish in your good wishes for her.  Masses will be celebrated in due time for the eternal repose of the sould of Mary Lynn as requested by her family and friends.  Again, thank you and be assured of our prayers for you as you go through this difficult time.  Fr. Oliver Nwachukwu, Ph.D. 



Our Sympathy to Adele S. Zdrowski's Family m --  "I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die" (John 11:25-26a).  And so we believe and pray for our dear Adele S. Zdrowski whom the Lord called to eternity on Sept. 10, 2021.  Adele remained a very actively committed member of St. Charles Borromeo till ill-health took a toll on her and she was taken to Friendship Manor in Nashville.  Even with that, Adele was regularly attending Sunday Mass at the  nursing home until the COVID-19 pandemic struck and our liturgical activities at the nursing home was discontinued.  Down at St. Charles Church in her heydays, Adele was a member of St. Theresa's Altar Sodality, a member of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas and a member of the parish quilter's group.  There was no social or liturgical activity of the parish that Adele could be said to have missed unless prevented by sickness.  May God who called her from this earthly life, grant her a peaceful rest in heaven.  On behalf of the members of St. Charles Borromeo parish I therefore, express our sincere sympathy to all the members of Adele's family -----the Shermans, the Zdrowskis, Polczinskis and a host of other friends of Adele left behind to mourn her departure.  May God comfort you with the assurance of the promised resurrection when we shall all rise in the Lord to part no more with our dear ones gone before us.  Adele was laid to rest on Thursday, Sept. 15 with Mass of Christian burial celebrated at St. Charles Borromeo Church where he body was laid in state for visitation before the Mass.  May she rest in peace.  Fr. Oliver Nwachukwu, Ph.D
