In memory of Frank Borges

Dear CP & BC Friends and Colleagues,

It is with a heavy heart that I bring you the sad news of Frank Borges passing on March 14, after a long and heroic struggle with health issues in Fresno, CA. His wife, Mary Borges called me and described Frank as happy and peaceful, surrounded by his loving family at home as he prepared to be “with Jesus,” with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy being prayed by those at his bedside.

Frank was a truly inspiring and dynamic leader of The Catholic Professional & Business Clubs. Since 1990 he and Mary, as co-founders, worked together tirelessly for twenty-five years as a great team “led by the Holy Spirit,” always going that extra mile in helping the various chapters to grow, getting new chapters started, and cultivating hundreds of wonderful and inspiring speakers , encouraging us all to live more fully our beautiful Catholic faith.

Frank will be truly missed by many, and his lasting memory will surely encourage and inspire the special apostolate and legacy of the CP&BC : “As Catholic professional and business men and women, we are called to live our Christian ethics not only on Sundays but throughout our daily lives at home and at work.”

Please keep Frank, Mary and their family in your prayers.

In Christ,
Bill Applegate – National President
Catholic Professional & Business Clubs
