 Welcome to Our Parish Website

Dear Internet Visitor,

I take this opportunity to welcome you to our parish community of St. Charles. I invite you to share with us in our liturgies and activities.  Since 1886, Saint Charles Borromeo Parish has been the Catholic presence in Northampton County on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  Two additional parishes have formed from our small community of faith.  One parish is in Onley, and the other is in Chincoteague, both in Accomack County.  We are a small but active faith community.  We are excited by the growth in the Cape Charles area.

If you are visiting our area, either passing through on vacation or looking for a quiet area to relocate or purchasing a second home, please know that you will always be welcomed in the community with a warm greeting and a friendly smile.

Thank you for your interest. I hope our website will be greeted with enthusiasm and offer a profile of our wonderful parish family.

God bless you and your loved ones.

We, the People of God, in St. Charles Parish, recognize our call as Christians, sharing in the mission to become fully supportive of each other, responsible for each other and accountable to God for our gifts; and to build a faith community through active participation in liturgical celebrations, applying Gospel values in our individual and communal lives, sharing fully in our various parish ministries, showing consistent concern for the needy among us including those of the larger community, and fostering the bonds of unity with other faith communities around us.
