Our apostolate of educating the young takes us beyond the walls of the classroom. Members of our community take part in parish youth groups, Catholic youth conferences, spiritual guidance, and the development of Sodalities of Our Lady. (Youth group pictures in Gallery).
Based upon the Catholic Jesuit Sodality Programs (1571-2008), the Knights of the Sacred Heart and the Daughters of the Immaculate Lily Sodalities are newly established - student founded, adult moderated - youth groups within the Saint Charles School family in Spokane. The Sodality program emphasizes personal holiness through consecration to Mary, life-long habits of virtue, and works of mercy. With increased interest and additional adult volunteers, we hope to share this ministry with other Catholic communities in the diocese.
"The fundamental task of the evangelization of culture is the challenge to make God visible in the human face of Jesus. In helping individuals to recognize and experience the love of Christ, you will awaken in them the desire to dwell in the house of the Lord, embracing the life of the Church. This is our mission." (Pope Benedict XVI)
