2nd Collection for Heating & AC Maintenance

Many of our HVAC units are very old! A few were installed when the church was built in 1995. Out of the 19 HVAC units that we have at STA, multiple are 20 years old, and some are almost 25 years old! In the efforts to prepare for the eventual replacement of multiple units, we need to be prepared.  With this in mind, every 2nd and 4th weekend of the month, we will be having a second collection aimed specifically at preparing for this huge need. We will restrict these funds for this purpose. We will not collect on weekends that already have diocesan 2nd collections. This parish’s generosity is amazing, and we are asking you to continue your graciousness yet again!  You can also donate online here!

8th Annual Diocesan Polish Mass

On Sunday, August 25th, we will host the 8th Annual Diocesan Polish Mass. The homily will be in English and Polish. This special event has drawn people of all nationalities from throughout the diocese.  After the Mass everyone will have the opportunity to venerate the 1st class relics of Pope St. John Paul II, St. Faustina, and her Spiritual Director, Blessed Father Sopocko. A reception with light refreshments will follow the Mass. Your donation of snacks and desserts is appreciated. Please refer to the bulletin for details or contact Deacon James or Mary Witulski  with any questions.

Men's Shelter Sandwich Collection

We are searching for a new lead to organize these monthly collections.  Duties include scheduling with the church, organizing transportation to deliver approximately 25-30 loaves of sandwiches to the shelter located on N. Tryon Street and communicating with the shelter as to the time the food will be delivered.  Please reach out to  volunteers@stacharlotte.com or John at 704-516-1273 or j1969n@yahoo.com. if you can assist each third Thursday of the month.

Let's Fix It Clinic

We are proud to partner with parishioner Peter Grieshop with his non-profit 'Let's Fix It Clinic', which assists in teaching the public on how to repair house hold items instead of replacing them with a new item. Our next clinic is scheduled on Sunday, August 4 from noon to 2:00 p.m. For more information, visit https://letsfixitclinic.com/
