Our Mission Statement

We are St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, located in Sharpstown. We gather as members of Christ’s Body to welcome all in faith, hope, and love. We are called to know and love God by serving His people and sharing the Good News with neighbor and stranger alike. We endeavor to foster fellowship, nurture our children, encourage stewardship, and promote spiritual responsibility. We recognize all is possible as we share in the Holy Eucharist.

“Blessed are the hearts that bend; they shall never be broken."

"Bienaventurados son los corazones que se doblan; nunca seran rotos."

St Francis de Sales
