Fr. Charles is originally from Kenya. He is 35 years old, the youngest of seven children, four brothers and three sisters. Growing up in Kenya, his parents gave him instructions in the Catholic faith. There he learned to revere the name of Christ, to have devotion to Mary, Mother of our Savior Jesus Christ and to have a great desire for God. There he also discerned his vocation to ministerial priesthood after much prayer and consultation with priest friends. He completed seminary formation at St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston and was ordained for the diocese of Dallas in 2013. Since then he has been serving at St. Patrick’s parish in Dallas.
