St. Charles Parish School Building

St. Charles Borromeo Parish is a Catholic parish located in NE Portland’s Cully Neighborhood. 

St. Charles church serves the whole community through its outreach activities, and welcomes new immigrants into its congregation. St. Charles celebrates the cultural diversity of their Church, by their multicultural worship services, by recognizing the dignity of each person, no matter the country they come from, and by incorporating other cultures’ forms of worship in their liturgies.

Through the St. Vincent DePaul society, St. Charles serves those who are homeless or on limited incomes, by offering a food pantry and a clothes closet on Tuesdays and Saturdays; and helps with rent and utilities. St. Vincent DePaul receives money from the parishioners of St. Charles, grants from the food bank, and a few grants from generous members of the congregation. Lastly, St. Charles belongs to the Catholic Archdiocese of Portland, and by that association, serves people throughout the western part of Oregon.

St. Charles and Verde completed a rooftop solar energy installation on the Church’s school building. The project provides enough renewable energy to meet St. Charles’s current electricity needs. The project will use industry standard Tier One 72-cell modules, inverters, racking and BOS to complete the installation in order to contain costs and accurately estimate production.
