About Us

SCB Exterior

Welcome to the web home of Saint Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church of Ashland, Pennsylvania. We are a parish of the Catholic Diocese of Allentown. Our parish serves the residents of Ashland, Girardville, and the surrounding communities as well as friends, visiting relatives, guests and travelers. Our parishioners strive to maintain the strong Catholic identity and cultural traditions established in our churches, while continuing to build a vibrant and spiritual community for the 21st century and beyond.

Visitors to our churches, Catholics from other parishes or those of other religions, are welcome to attend Holy Mass at any of our churches (we ask that only Catholics who are prepared to do so, receive Holy Communion). Anyone interested in joining our parish is welcome to contact the parish office for more information.

Hello! My name is Anh Mai. I am from St. Paul's Parish in Reading. I have been in formation for five years now and will be continuing to Theology II in August. With great discernment, I entered the seminary in 2018 after three years of studying Chemistry at Temple University. The younger of two siblings, I spent my early childhood in Vietnam until my family moved to the United States in 2006, when I was 9. Some of my hobbies are: reading philosophy, backpacking, soccer, drawing, and painting.
