Knights of Columbus - SFB Round Table
The Knights of Columbus is an International Catholic organization dedicated to the ideals of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. Our parish group of men and women have joined together to extend that charity to those most in need of help within our parish.
Going on our third year of helping the needy of our parish, we provide volunteers for yard work, electrical, plumbing, carpentry, painting, landscaping, fencing, hauling, sewing, home visitation, gutter cleaning, and computer/electronic technology assistance.
If you are a widow/widower, divorced/single parent, or elderly and are in need of help, please let us know how we can help you.

Reach Out Ministry
Given that many parish families are impacted by divorce in some way, the Reach Out Ministry was formed to help Saint Francis Borgia foster a welcoming, judgment-free and supportive environment for people suffering from divorce.
The Mission Statement of the Ministry is: Build a welcoming and respectful parish in the tradition of the Beatitudes which inspires people to worship together in a true community of mercy. The Ministry answers to the pastor of St. Francis Borgia.
We hope to provide a social/support group for divorced men and women. Our support would provide a resource for individuals in need and accompany them in their struggles.
One of the first programs to be offered by this Ministry is the Catholic's Divorce Survival Guide. This is a powerful DVD series and support group format which helps separated and divorced Catholics find, peace, power, and renewed passion for life. This 12-week program features 30-minute DVD shows each week, covering topics of shock, denial, anger, grief, guilt, forgiveness and much more, as well as discussion opportunities. Whether you were divorced ten days ago or ten years ago, the program offers valuable insight for everyone.
