It is a Joyous Time For Our Parish Family.
On Saturday, May 26, Deacon James "Jimmy" Schibi was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Jesus Christ at the Church of the Magdalen, Wichita. Father Schibi went to high school in St. Paul and graduated with the class of 2006. During his time at St. Francis he was confirmed and attended the St. Francis Parish School of Religion with many of our students. As he progressed through his Sacraments and religious education with us and his home parish of St. Patrick's, he received his call to the priesthood.
Father Schibi will celebrate Mass at St. Francis Catholic Church on Saturday evening, June 9th at 5:30 p.m. Following the Mass, the Altar Society and Knights of Columbus will serve dinner at the St. Francis Parish Hall. All St. Francis and St. Ambrose parishioners are invited to attend and wish him well!
