This Lent, Saint Francis Borgia will be focusing on our twinning relationship with Saint Michael and Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Parishes. These two parishes are located in the heart of the City of Milwaukee. Our main focus will be to financially assist St. Michael’s roof and window repairs. St. Michael Parish inherited a beautiful, historic church from its founders and that building requires significant investment. Currently, the impressive bell tower needs tuck-pointing, repositioning of loosed massive brick stones, cleaning of the interior and repairing veneer windows. The northern section of the church needs a new roof and the historical parish rectory building needs new windows to remedy significant energy waste.
If you would like to contribute to the roof project, you may do so in the following ways:
- You may make a check out to “St. Michael Congregation” and place it in an envelope marked St. Michael’s and put it in the collection basket at Mass or drop off in the donation boxes at South Church.
- You may make a cash donation at the second collection we will be holding at the Palm Sunday Masses.
- You may donate online at the Saint Michael and Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Parishes website. You would select “Donate to St. Michael”, then select “Other” in the to: box. When making the donation you would add a note indicating that the money is for the roof repairs and that you are from St. Francis Borgia.
