HOUSTON — The Catholic community of St. Francis de Sales gathered on Sept. 22 for an "evening of remembrance and gratitude to God" in their church building in order to formally usher in their parish renovation project.

In February, a capital campaign began, which will renovate their current church, replace their parking lot, renovate their first church, provide new air-conditioning for their first church and school and renovate their parish rectory.

The parish has hired HBL Architects and the Brookstone General Contractors team to lead the effort. Founded in 1962, St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church has served the faithful of Sharpstown and the surrounding area for more than 49 years. Father Wayne Wilkerson said the renovation project is slated for completion in the Fall of 2012 as the parish prepares to celebrate 50 years of ministry and service to a diversity of people of southwest Houston.
