“Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You?” (Matthew 25:37)
St Charles Borromeo, the oldest Roman Catholic parish in northern Rhode Island, is a community of believers striving with everyday faith to be a sign of God’s love in our community and beyond, in accordance with the teaching of Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith.
Our mission is to give thanks in worship and song, to reconcile ourselves with God, to share in the Liturgy of the Word, to gain the Lord’s peace and to receive the Holy Eucharist, thereby increasing and strengthening our faith and devotion.
Our ministries provide music for worship, teaching the faith to our children, ongoing adult faith education, meditation periods on God’s Word, food for the needy at our pantry, prayer and pastoral visits for the sick and dying, and a meeting place for assistance to immigrants, the homeless, and the addicted.
We encourage responsible stewardship. We sponsor social activities to celebrate parish life and nurture loving friendships. With the help of the Holy Spirit and our patron, St. Charles Borromeo, we commit ourselves to follow our mission; that is, to build a stronger community of faith among God’s people.
