May 3 - May Crowning
The month of May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. One of the most beautiful traditions in Catholicism is that of May Crowning. Join us as our parish crowns the Blessed Mother as Queen of Heaven and Earth. Following the 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday, May 3, the parish community is invited to process with our First Communicants to our Marian Shrine (across from the plaza), where the statue of Our Blessed Mother will be crowned.
May 3 - Confirmation Mass
We welcome Bishop Richard Sklba to St. Francis Borgia as we will celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday, May 3 at 2 p.m. You are welcome and invited to join in at this joyous celebration. Please continue to hold our high school candidates in your prayers as they look forward to the seal of the Holy Spirit and their fuller participation as members of our Catholic church.
May 6 - Join the SFB Youth Choir
The SFB Youth Choir includes boys and girls in Grades 2-8. The season runs from the end of August through May, but new children are welcome to join at any time. We rehearse every Wednesday from 3:45-4:45 p.m. in the SFB School Gym, and the choir periodically sings at weekend Masses and some special liturgies during the school year. Our last rehearsal this year is Wednesday, May 6. Children are welcome to come and try it to see how they like it. (Next year, we will be rehearsing in the Music Room of the new Education & Activity Center. We canít wait!) The goals of the Youth Choir are to share the gift of music with friends and the SFB Congregation, teach children about the Catholic liturgy, and introduce them to high quality, sacred music appropriate for church. We work diligently to teach the children proper vocal technique, as well as leadership, music literacy, and performance skills. In addition we introduce the technique of playing hand chimes, hand bells, rhythm instruments, and African drums, as well as introduce students to solo singing and cantoring. We strive for excellence and are proud of the children for sharing a high quality gift of music with the SFB congregation. We are also proud of their understanding of the Catholic liturgy and what it means to provide stewardship. If you have a child who is interested in joining the Youth Choir, please contact the parish office at 377-1070.
