What is a 'Spiritual Life' ? If you tend to ask yourself this question you are not alone. Isn't it true that there is no perfect definition? Yet there is a guide, the life of Christ. Told to us in many different voices in the bible, the letter of James says this, " I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works". (James 2:18)
How does one learn to do this? Below you will find ministries that can help you come to a deeper understanding of your 'Spiritual Life'.
For many years St. Charles has offered different forms of Bible Study. Many of our parishioners as well as friends who live in the area have joined our studies. We welcome you to look at what we are currently studying and what we will be studying in the future by clicking here.
