175th Anniversary Book Sale

St. Francis Borgia’s 175th-anniversary book is an 88-page, full-color, soft-cover, coffee table-style book that celebrates our parish, both from historical and contemporary perspectives. Ambitious readers will be able to read the full text cover to cover. Others may choose to jump casually from section to section and enjoy the many photos or glance at the short, accessible bits of information scattered throughout.

The book is organized into eight sections that draw on all the resources available to tell our story over 175 years, through 2019. The sections:

  1. Our Faith Community — a current-day look at our parish, its members, ministries, and activities
  2. History — covers 175 years, and includes the short history of Divine Word parish and the merger of the two parishes
  3. Where We Pray — a close look at all our worship spaces, including both churches, from a historical and photographic viewpoint
  4. Clergy — includes profiles of our pastors over the last 50-or-so years, our associate pastors, helper priests and deacons
  5. Christian Formation — an overview of our various educational programs
  6. School — from beginning to current day, in words and photos
  7. Cemetery — from beginning to current day, in words and photos
  8. Celebrating Our Anniversary — a pictorial overview of last year’s celebrations

Cost per book: $15.00
