Meet our pastor, Father Charles Gallagher


Fr. Charles Gallagher grew up in Hyattsville, MD. He went to parochial grade school and then to the Heights in Potomac for high school. He graduated from Fordham in the Bronx, and did most of his seminary at the Pontifical North American College in Rome. After his ordination in 2010, he served as assistant pastor at St. Peter’s on Capitol Hill for the summer before returning to Rome to complete his licentiate. In 2011 he became assistant pastor at St. Mary’s in Rockville and then pastor of Our Lady of the Wayside in St. Mary’s County. He is thrilled to be the 14th pastor of ICC. Father is also the Chaplain to the Catholic students and faculty at GWU.
