St. Charles Church, Oakwood Heights, Staten Island


Welcome to our new pastor,

Father Patrick Buckley.

Fr. Buckley was pastor of St. Christopher’s, Red Hook-St. Sylvia’s, Tivoli. Prior to that assignment, he was parochial vicar of St. Teresa’s, Staten Island, and St. Stephen’s, Warwick.



In light of the recent easing of COVID-19 restrictions by New York State, mask requirements are no longer mandated at Mass for vaccinated individuals.  If you are not yet comfortable with this eased restriction, we have sectioned off part of the church for those who would like to continue to wear a mask and maintain six feet social distance. 

Please continue to support our parish by signing up for WeShare.



We are pleased to announce that our parish has subscribed to an exciting new online platform: Formed.orgView the best Catholic videos, audio programs, e-books and movies on your computer, tablet or smart- phone for free!

Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you. 
Never permit me to be separated from you.
