Welcome to the Church of St. Charles Borromeo and Resurrection Chapel. We are a Roman Catholic Church in the heart of Harlem in New York City. The nearly 1000 families of our congregation give praise and honor to God, as revealed through Jesus Christ, in our daily masses and prayers. We also regularly celebrate the Sacraments of the Church. When our people gather we do so as a community, relying on the inspiration of the Holy Spirit while listening to God’s Word and sharing in the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Worship at St. Charles Borromeo and Resurrection Chapel is always a celebration of the gift of Salvation. In worship we regularly express our joy by drawing on the rich traditions of African American music, preaching and sacred movement.
The study and the teaching of the traditions of our Roman Catholic faith is important to both youth and adults in our community. We offer numerous opportunities for our people to learn their faith. Since, we are told in scripture, “a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone” (James 2:24), our members strive through our many works to exercise our ministry as disciples of Jesus Christ by extending the hand of fellowship to all who seek the Lord and need the Lord’s help. The schedule of our worship services and Sacramental offerings is included for both of our church sites, at St. Charles Borromeo and also at Resurrection chapel.
Enjoy your visit to our website.
