“Why are you troubled?” Our Lord’s question for his first disciples
continues to echo in our hearts today. Joyfully, so does his answer for
all of our anxiousness and uncertainty. Come to me! Our Risen Lord
continues to dwell among us in Word and Sacrament! This Saturday,
April 25th, our second graders will have a “retreat day” in anticipation
of sharing in the Holy Eucharist for the first time on Sunday, May 3rd.
Please pray that they will always encounter the real presence of Christ
with the same eagerness and joy as they now possess.
Please keep in your prayers this week, as well, Braden Maher and
Paul Bonk who will be ordained transitional deacons for our diocese on
Saturday, April 25th at the Cathedral.
Pax et Bonum.
Fr. John
2014 ACSA Goal
ANNUAL CATHOLIC
SERVICES APPEAL UPDATE:
“Growing Communities of Faith”
Thank you to the parishioners who have pledged
$41,662 toward our goal of $41,900. Your generous
response will enable the diocese to continue God’s
work in the diocese.
If you have not contributed but would like to, please
call the office. All money that is paid over our goal
comes back to the parish.
THE CATHOLIC HOME MISSIONS APPEAL
will take place next weekend. One way that this
appeal works to strengthen home mission dioceses in
the United States is by funding seminarian formation
in poor dioceses. Educating each seminarian can cost
between $35,000 - $40,000 per year. Your support is
needed for these young men, so that they might go
back and serve their parishes. Please strengthen the
Church at home by making a generous gift to next week’s appeal.
EVERYTHING FROM MUGS TO RUGS!
Doing some spring cleaning? Moving out at the
end of the semester? Not sure what to do with
good, usable furniture? What about mini fridges,
clothes, or other miscellaneous items? LOOK NO
FURTHER! The annual collection for the Mugs to Rugs Haiti
Connection Yard Sale is underway!
You can drop off items at the Newman Center starting April 25,
or if you would rather your items be picked up – we can do that! Just
contact the Newman Center at (217) 348-0188 or Ivy at 217-412-5188

ST. CHARLES MISSION STATEMENT
You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the
greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew
22:37-39
We strive to live out Jesus’ command to love God and neighbor. Centered in the Eucharist of Jesus Christ, we
are fed and strengthened by God’s gift of love. As we are nourished, we seek to share God’s love with our
families, friends and communities near and far.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and
of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you
always, until the end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20
