As we begin our prayerful consideration of what we will offer as gifts of treasure to support St. Francis Borgia Parish in 2019, I ask you to consider the ministries that are being highlighted on the covers of several bulletins. Please consider the good works of our Inner City Ministry. These volunteers offer many services to assist those living in Milwaukee. One of the most impressive offerings is that they pick up day-old bread and bakery items from local grocery stores every single day of the year! The donated food is taken to shelters and food pantries.
At least once a week, another group of Inner City Ministry drivers takes the donations from our drop-off shed to the House of Peace, Repairers of the Breach and the MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary.
Parishioners also volunteer many hours at the House of Peace, Cathedral Center, St. Ben’s and other facilities and shelters that serve those less fortunate. St. Francis Borgia is a large and vibrant community. It’s thanks to your support of our parish that we’re able to support and assist our brothers and sisters in the inner city of Milwaukee.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
– Fr. Patrick Burns
