Lifelong CatechesisForming Catholic identity across generations
For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.
Charles Borromeo, Bishop
Charles was the second of two sons in a family of six. He was born into an aristocratic family in Italy. His mother, Margaret, was a Medici, and her younger brother became Pope Pius IV. Charles, who became a cardinal, worked hard to correct the mistakes that had contributed to divisions within Christianity. Because of his efforts to reform the training of priests, Saint Charles Borromeo is the patron saint of seminarians. His feast day is November 4.
