Consider this … from Fr. Patrick (8/19)

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 the next several bulletins.

Last week, pictures from our recent Mission Trip to Houston, TX were shared. On the trip, 34 high school youth and seven chaperones spent a week assisting with ongoing repairs from the damage inflicted by Hurricane Harvey last August. It was a meaningful experience for everyone.

This week, we’re sharing pictures of some of the seven Catholic Sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony.)

In 2017, St. Francis Borgia Parish supported our families and celebrated:

  • 48 baptisms
  • 79 First Communions
  • 71 Confirmations
  • 18 weddings
  • 48 funerals

We have a large and vibrant community. It’s thanks to your support of our parish that we’re able to do these good works!
