Love One Another Campaign relaunched

St. Francis Borgia Parish is relaunching its participation in the Love One Another Campaign. The success of our early campaign efforts in 2020 is a testament to the faith and generosity of our community, and we will carry our momentum into this year to reach the remainder of our goal.

Our goal is to raise $2,290,042 in pledges payable over five years from our parish families. The majority of funds from these pledges—60 percent or more if we go over goal–will help us meet local needs listed below.

The remaining funds will be used in support of archdiocesan efforts focusing on the poor and those in need, Saint Francis de Sales Seminary, Catholic schools, and other important Catholic ministries.

The campaign will eventually involve all parishes in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee with an overall goal of strengthening parishes and supporting programs and ministries of the Catholic Church in southeastern Wisconsin.

More information about the Love One Another Campaign will become available in the coming months. If you have any questions, please send an email to the parish. Until then, please pray for the success of the campaign. Together, we can do our part to grow our parish and vital ministries. God bless you!

St. Francis Borgia’s Local Needs

North Church Restoration | $320,000

More than 1,500 people join together every weekend to worship God for our Sunday Masses. In order to ensure we are serving our parishioners and visitors well, and protect the future of this space, we need to make improvements. They include enhancing our outdoor plaza and roof replacement on all parish buildings.

Eliminate the Education and Activity Center Mortgage | $335,000

In 2015 our parish and school community were able to take the amazing step to build a new Education and Activity Center. This center houses our school and is also utilized for various parish functions, including Christian Formation. Due to the amazing work of dedicated volunteers and staff, our debt has been reduced significantly. Through this capital campaign, we will eliminate the debt in full which will allow us to focus more deeply on our mission.

South Church Renovations | $719,025

The South Church is a beacon of faith and Catholicism in our community. We utilize this site for our daily Mass, weddings, select Masses, as well as Eucharistic Adoration. With Adoration, this Church has been revitalized and is a center for prayer throughout the week for parishioners and visitors alike. This campaign will allow us to restore the original beauty of the space by doing work that includes installing and restoring beautiful altars as well as redoing the floors and repainting the interior of the Church. It will also allow us to do maintenance which includes stone tuckpointing and bell tower restoration.
