We calculate mass spectra of charmed baryons within a relativistically covariant quark model based on the Bethe-Salpeter equation in instantaneous approximation. Interactions are given by a linearly rising three-body confinement potential and a flavor-dependent two-body force derived from QCD instanton effects. This model has already been successfully applied to the calculation of light flavor baryon spectra and is now extended to heavy baryons. Within the same framework we compare the results to those obtained with the more conventional one-gluon exchange potential.
