MISSION STATEMENT: St. Charles Catholic Community is a family of faith, recognizing and affirming the love of God in ourselves and in one another. We are called to continue the mission of Christ: In reaching out to those in need physically, emotionally, and spiritually; in teaching the word of God in words and action; in celebrating the love of God in the Sacraments and worship; and in strengthening one another with our faith, stories, lives, joy, encouragement, and prayers.
Fr. John Gathungu is Pastor of St. Charles Borromeo in Salmon, Idaho, its stations of St. Louise in Challis, Idaho, St. Barbara in Mackay, Idaho, St. Ann in Arco, Idaho, and St. Joseph Chapel in Leadore, Idaho.
Mass is also provided in Stanley, Idaho at the Sawtooth Meditation Chapel during the summer months.

“Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.” (Mark 9:41)
We are made in God’s image and likeness. We tend to forget this. When you look at others, do you see the face of Jesus in them? When others look at you, do they see the face of Jesus in you? When we realize that all lives matter to God, then gratitude and generously become easier. Why? Because that’s the way we are made! We are one Body of Christ; when one of us is hurting, all of us feel the pain.
