Welcome, PEACE & GOOD WILL TO ALL!

BIENVENIDOS, PAZ Y BIEN

 

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, 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.

FRANCISCAN SISTERS 50TH YEARS OF SERVICE

 

 

In 1965 began the construction of the new convent for the Religious Sisters, kindergarten and nursery school, that today is still considered as a model of order and good teaching for the children. The Franciscan Religious Order Daughters of Mercy took care of this work since then to the present. Rev. Mateo Ramis, TOR, Pastor of the parish at the time, brought them from Mallorca, Spain. Currently, four Franciscan Sisters: Sr. Catherine Vallespir, Sr. Barbara Herrera, Sr. Pauline Aguirre, Sr. Claudia Galicia Castro and their dedicated group of childcare, attend a large number of children in the daycare that has served many families within the Waco community. We thank the Franciscan Sisters for all the great job they have done for the care of children of the community and their dedication and support to St. Francis Church.

En 1965 comenzó la construcción del nuevo convento de las Hermanas Religiosas y escuela infantil, que hoy en día sigue siendo considerado como un modelo de orden y una buena enseñanza para los niños. La Orden Religiosa Franciscana Hijas de la Misericordia se hizo cargo de esta obra desde ese entonces hasta el presente. Rev. Mateo Ramis, TOR, Párroco de la parroquia en aquel momento las trajo de Mallorca, España. En la actualidad, son cuatro Hermanas Franciscanas, Sor Catalina Vallespir, Sor. Barbara Herrera, Sor Pauline Aguirre, Sor Claudia Galicia Castro y su dedicado grupo de cuidado infantil, asisten a una cantidad numerosa de niños en la guardería que ha servido por varias décadas a muchas familias de la comunidad de Waco. Agradecemos a las hermanas Franciscanas por todo el gran trabajo que han realizado para el cuidado de los niños de la comunidad y por su gran dedicación y aportación a la parroquia de San Francisco.
