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.
1st Sunday of Advent
“But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand.” (Luke 21:28)
We celebrate Advent each year in preparation for the birth of Jesus, His first coming, as we await His second coming. What will you do differently this Advent season to grow in friendship and love with Jesus? How will you inspire others to do the same? Start by sharing your God story with others, especially those closest to you. Invite and accompany them on their faith journey this Advent.
