Pastor’s Message:
New Education & Activity Center Is Dream Come True

Our new Education & Activity Center is almost all finished! The fast progress over the winter and spring has been just amazing. The E&AC will house four things:
1.   St. Francis Borgia Catholic School
2.   SFB Christian Formation programs for youth and adults
3.   Year–Round Day Care
4.   Sports Ministry and rental programs in a multi-purpose gym that has a stage and kitchen facilities

Truly, this is a dream come true. The dream was to have a one-campus parish with the synergy of all our programs influencing, supporting, and feeding off one other.

The building itself is large and spacious. The archways in the halls give character, and the colors in the classrooms and hallways give life. The large library and music center will be available for parish meetings and choir practices. The science and art rooms are the envy of every teacher. And there are spectacular views from every classroom of the sunrise, sunset, wildlife, and wetlands. Notably, the building has many high tech features in HVAC and security.

It is our hope that a gorgeous building will enhance an already excellent academic program at SFB School, and attract new students to the school. In that way, it’s a down payment on Catholic education for the future. Our old building was a disincentive to prospective new families.

Christian Formation too will have many more scheduling options, since they won’t have to double up or share classroom space. Classes will be able to meet more often, rather than wait for space on alternate weeks.

The building will be in use long before the formal dedication, but I will invite you to the dedication now on Sunday, August 9, 2015:
•   1:00 p.m. Dedication Ceremony with Archbishop Jerome Listecki
•   2:00 p.m. Tours for the Public
•   2:00 p.m. Other Festivities

 

Daily Scripture

As Catholics, we are encouraged to read Scripture, especially focusing on the readings included in our liturgies. An easy way to find these and other Scripture texts is to link to the site for the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops:
