Welcome to St Francis Xavier
A welcoming, generous, faithful community

About St. Francis Xavier
St. Francis Xavier parish is a growing community of disciples of Jesus Christ committed to loving God, loving others and making disciples.
As Roman Catholics, we seek to honor our faith tradition by authentically and creatively presenting it in our community especially to Catholics who have become disconnected to the Church.

Ministry Perspectives – Reflections from our Pastoral Team
The One In Christ ACC Planning Council is looking for more parish members to become involved in the work of the Stewardship, Evangelization and Young Adult engagement committees of our ACC to share their creative ideas and to foster communication with parishioners. This is an opportunity to participate more deeply in your faith and help drive the direction of our Catholic community.
Contact any one of your parish representatives or your parish office
if you are interested or want to learn more.
