Greetings from our Pastor..........

Nestled in the heart of Peru, Indiana, our parish is rich in history and filled with deep love for Jesus Christ.  Truly a family of faith, we seek to serve our Lord by nurturing each and every individual through the Sacraments and catechesis, care for the poor and imprisoned, and by ministering to the sick and homebound.

I hope you find our parish website to be a spiritually renewing resource and invite you to join us for Mass.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the parish office.  We look forward to serving you at St. Charles Parish.

Fr. Eric Underwood

When the town of Peru was plotted, lots were reserved for the churches likely to need them.  The Catholics were the first to build and erected the first church in 1835.  It was a frame building 20x40 feet in area and was constructed by James B. Campbell, a carpenter living here at the time.  A bell was hung in position and inspired the Christian people with great fervor.  (More)
