Join the Fight to Open our Churches!

"Every one therefore that shall confess me before men,
I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven.
" (Mt 10:32)


Our Mission

The St. Charles Borromeo Society is driven by a single goal: To assist the faithful in defending their right to full access to all the sacraments, which are the primary means of salvation, spiritual nourishment and union with Jesus Christ. 


We have chosen as our patron the great Cardinal Archbishop of Milan who, when he closed the churches during the plague of 1576, ensured that the faithful still had access to the sacraments by building outdoor altars.  The locations of these altars are still commemorated today with stone crosses.

“How lovely are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!
My soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord. 
Behold, O God our protector: and look on the face of thy Christ.  
For better is one day in thy courts above thousands.”
