Welcome, PEACE & GOOD WILL TO ALL!

BIENVENIDOS, PAZ Y BIEN

 

 

Our mission is to provide a place of worship for the community and the travelers,
looking for meaning, re-establishing their faith or enriching their spirituality. Our
goal is to establish a good formation of Catholics with a growing concern for the
Immigrant and the poor. We provide a beautiful and peaceful place of worship, a
place to meditate from one's busy life, a place to connect and feel safe.

 

The doors of the Church are open all day for those who may want to stop by for prayer or just to enjoy the beautiful architecture and art of the temple. We welcome in a special way to out-of -town visitors. Our Church offers Mass times to meet the needs of everyone. We also provide special celebrations throughout the year. Please join us in our celebration of the Eucharist!

Saint Francis on the Brazos, enriched with beautiful paintings, it is one of the most exquisite and attractive churches of Texas. It is the Church of hundreds of Immigrant families in Central Texas, as well as the hub of their religious and social activities. As in its architecture it is a happy combination of the American advanced early 20th century methods of construction with the colorful characteristics of the Spanish Mission style, in its activities it strives also to combine the color, the faith, and the gracefulness of the Spanish element with the best values of the American life.
