Brother James Newberry was appointed Administrator of St. Charles and Lauer was appointed Executive Director. At the time of its founding, those in charge of St. Charles set a structured regimen for the boys placed in their care. The day’s agenda called for the boys to rise at 6:15 am; attend mass prior to their 7:30 am breakfast; perform chores, including washing dishes, making their beds, and sweeping floors and then participating in recreation until the 9:00 am start of school. Residents were in classes until the 11:45 am lunch and recreation break. School resumed at 1:30 pm and ran until 3:30 pm when recreation was available until the 5:45 pm dinner hour. The last recreation of the day ended at 7:00 pm which was then the time for study which ran until bedtime.
