Reaching Out in San Angelo

The Franciscan Resource Center, the sisters' sponsored ministry in San Angelo, Texas, continues providing faith formation classes in Spanish, covering such topics as scripture, sacraments and morality. About 12 to 15 people gather weekly for sessions that always conclude with fellowship over “cafecito and postre” (dessert and coffee). 

In addition to helping members grow deeper in faith, the class serves as a forum for participants to share life’s joys and struggles. The book of prayer petitions keeps groups attentive to the many needs of the community.

The Immigration Office of the Diocese of San Angelo continues to be housed at the FRC. We are happy to be able to partner with the diocese in assisting with this service to “welcome the stranger.”

In addition to reflection days and book review days, the FRC also is home to various meetings related to the work of Sisters Adelina Garcia and Hilda Marotta in the Diocese of San Angelo, including gatherings of directors of religious education and Advisory Committee meetings. “People always comment how much they enjoy the peace and quiet of the Center and also appreciate the Franciscan art,” says Sister Hilda.

The FRC also hosts a bilingual Transitus service on October 3 each year that is well attended by all ages.
