Thank You for Continued Support

Thank you for your continued support of St. Francis Borgia! As you have probably read in recent bulletins, the parish exceeded its goal in the Love One Another campaign. This is important to remember that these funds are designated for specific capital spending (debt retirement, roof repair at North Church and restoration of the interior of the South Church). These funds cannot be used to pay for our regular operating expenses such as lights, heat, salaries, and benefits. Your weekly contributions to the parish are used for these purposes. Year to date stewardship for the parish is down .5% or $27,000 compared to the prior year. We may be able to meet this revenue shortfall through the generosity of parishioners over the remaining four months of the current fiscal year (June 30, 2022). The parish, just like all of us, is dealing with rising prices which make eliminating this stewardship shortfall more difficult. If you are able, please consider re-starting or increasing your stewardship commitment to help our parish balance revenues with expenses.

Thank you, ~ Fr. Patrick
