St. Charles and St.
Otterbein and Oxford, Indiana
Rev. Thomas J. Haan, Administrator
Welcome to St. Charles and St. Patrick web site. Thank you for inquiring about our parishes and their activities. We desire that you will take a more definitive step of communicating with us by attending our religious services and other ministerial meetings. Face to face is a far greater form of communication than the written word. God became man to relate to us face to face and not just in the written words of Scripture. You are welcome at St. Charles and St. Patrick any time to pray, socialize and/or work with us in bringing about a greater degree of the Kingdom of God here and now and for all eternity.
Let us strive to live out this Mission Statement of our diocese. Pray for our bishop Timothy L. Doherty, and all those who serve the Church.
The Mission of the Catholic people of Northcentral Indiana is to proclaim the Kingdom of God, to praise the name of Jesus and follow Him by
Loving God and our neighbor, especially those in need;
Worshipping God as a faith community in word and sacrament;
Responding to ongoing personal conversion;
Teaching of the Gospel message in the Catholic tradition; and
Engaging in renewal, outreach, evangelization and ecumenical cooperation.
We, the people of the Local Church, gathered by the power of the Holy Spirit, are committed to responsible stewardship of our human and financial resources.
