St. Charles was established in 1862 and is the oldest Roman Catholic parish in Woburn. We currently serve a parish family of approximately 6,900 souls and conduct the Liturgy in both English and Spanish. In '10-'11 we conducted 146 Baptisms, 103 First Communions, 93 Confirmations, 32 Marriages and 139 Funerals.

Our faith community is rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition. We reflect the presence of Jesus Christ by reaching out to others in charity. As a parish, we minister to one another by uniting our worship with life experiences.

Our ministry schedule is now available on line.

Accommodations for Handicapped via Summer Street entrance.
