Where Spouses Discover God’s Plan for Their Family

  • "Together in Holiness was an encouragement to us to remember God's faithfulness in the sacrament of matrimony - He will not give up on us and He is there with us every step of the way, in our domestic church, He is present and near to us. We would recommend this conference to all married couples or couples soon to be married!"

Rev. Francisco Rodriguez III
Pastor, Saint William Catholic Church

Fr. Francisco was born in Lockhart, Texas, to Francisco Rodriguez Jr. and Isabel Gamez. He grew up in San Marcos, Texas, where I graduated high school and left for the United States Marine Corps, serving active duty and reserve from 1991-1997. He moved to Georgetown, Texas, in 2004, while I was working as an estimator for a heavy construction company. On July 31, 2006, during Mass, he heard the Lord ask me to “let it all go, and come and see." Fr. Francisco entered St. Joseph’s Abbey and Seminary College in 2007 for his undergrad and St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston in 2010 for his graduate studies. Fr. Francisco was ordained a priest of Jesus Christ on June 6, 2015, and served as associate pastor at Saint William from 2015-2017, then St. Albert the Great as associate pastor for six months, before being named Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Temple, Texas and St. Matthew Mission in Rogers, Texas for three years. In January 2021, Fr. Francisco was welcomed back to Saint William and installed as Pastor with great joy.
