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.


2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time


“To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.”



St. Paul tells us that God has blessed each of us for a reason.  How has God blessed you?  Are you using your gifts according to God’s plan?  How are you helping to build God’s kingdom here on earth?  Remember that if you don’t do the work God planned for you, no one else can do it.  Live the life God has intended for you.  Take time to discern your charisms (gifts from the Holy Spirit).  Experience the supernatural Peace and Joy God desires for each of us.
