St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Jacksonville and St. Joachim Catholic Church in Piedmont are close in proximity — they’re only about 12 miles apart. They’re close to the same age — St. Joachim was founded in 1961 and St. Charles in 1962. And they share the same priest, Rev. Thomas Nattekkadan.
The members of both parishes regard each other with strong kinship. At times, members of both churches attend the other’s worship services.
