About St. Francis Xavier

Catholic Community

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.

“There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken."

Luke 21:25-26


“Be vigilant at all times and pray

that you have the strength to

escape the tribulations that are

imminent and to stand before

the Son of Man.”

—Luke 21:36

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.
