Prayer Service for Aborted Children

Sept. 8, 2018

On Saturday, Sept. 8, a memorial prayer service was held for aborted children at the Rachel statue outside the St. Francis Borgia-South Church. This was the sixth annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. At the service, Fr. Patrick delivered a powerful reflection, participants prayed and sang “Amazing Grace,” and the Knights of Columbus stood guard by our precious Rachel statue witnessing to life. The prayer service was organized by the St. Francis Borgia Respect Life Ministry. Prayer services were held throughout the country on this day to commemorate the more than 55 million children who have lost their lives to legal abortion since 1973, and to remind our society of the humanity of the unborn child.

Welcoming Fr. Patrick Burns

June 25-26, 2016
On June 25-26, our new Associate Pastor, Fr. Patrick Burns, concelebrated the Saturday evening and Sunday Masses with Pastor Fr. Tom Eichenberger. Fr. Patrick, who grew up in Mequon, was ordained a priest in May 2013 by Archbishop Jerome Listecki. He served his first three years as an associate pastor at St. Charles Parish in Hartland. In his homily, Fr. Patrick expressed appreciation for the opportunity to serve the parish and described the historic south church as the “crown of downtown Cedarburg.” We feel blessed to have Fr. Patrick at St. Francis Borgia as our associate pastor. Parishioners had a chance to meet him at the receptions held after all the Masses. Click to view gallery.
