Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
My associate, Fr. Michael Ciski, TOR and I welcome you to Saint Maria Goretti Catholic Church!
We are the mother church of Catholics in Arlington, Texas, having been founded in 1941 to serve the faithful. We are also a Franciscan parish and school, which means we follow Saint Francis, the little poor man of Assisi, and strive to emulate his life of prayer, service, and joyful appreciation and reverence for all God’s creation. I invite you to join us as we celebrate the sacraments, lift up our voices in prayer and in song, and reach out to those most in need in our community.
In the words of blessed Francis, “It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.”
Come walk with us!
Fr. Luke Robertson, TOR
Look for tidbits from our pastor, Father Luke Robertson in the near future.
