St. Francis de Sales Catholic Parish of Lumberton, NC

As announced the past few weeks, the Diocese of Raleigh GRACIOUSLY forgave $50,000 of our mortgage.  Here is the finished product of the Thank You Card we sent them, with all of YOUR signatures!

As a reminder, there will be NO Mass, meetings, trainings, or activities scheduled/allowed Saturday, October 21, 2023 on our Parish Campus.  This is requested by Bishop Zarama, in hopes that EVERYONE attends this FREE Conference

Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Church
Inclement Weather Policy

In order to help ensure the safety of our Parishioners, the Church and other facilities will be closed and religious education, groups, committees and clubs will not meet or use Parish facilities and grounds under the following conditions:

  •  When Robeson County is under a Tropical Storm or Hurricane Watch, and during the storm.
    • The most common cause of death in our area from these storms is from people trying to drive through flooded areas.  As the rain is falling, please stay home.  When it clears, stay out of the flooded areas on roads and bridges!  We want to see you safe!
  • If there is a threat of ice on the roads or roads are covered with ice and/or snow.
    • Robeson County lacks the ability to clear snow and ice from secondary roads and neighborhood streets.  Please stay home until it melts.  It usually won’t last more than 48 hours.
  • Electricity is out at the Church
    • We will notify you if there is a power outage at the Church through Social Media and the Parish app. 
  • The Governor declares a state of emergency asking people to stay home in Robeson County.

In all cases the Parish Staff will communicate over Social Media to let the members of the Parish know that we have closed and to let them know when we have opened the facilities back up for regular activities.
