Resources on the Web Site of St Charles Borromeo Picayune, Mississipi

The Web site of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church Picayune, Mississippi offers a wealth of free and useful resources. Included are several extensive documents containing short answers to questions about about the Catholic faith, Bible study notes on readings for Sunday Masses, Holy Days of Obligation and other special days in the liturgical calendar for all three cycles, an extensive religious images gallery, a section on patron saints with hundreds of short hagiographies, close to 150 popular Catholic prayers, a complete searchable version of the Catechism of the Catholic Church... and more. This site is a gem.

This parish is also one of the many parishes that has been affected by Katrina. The roof of the church was completely torn off which caused water damage to the entire interior of the church. A St. Charles Hurricane Katrina Fund has been set up and you can make a contribution online if you wish.
