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.

Don’t forget to pick up your white Prayer bag by the Cross in the Gathering Space. Also leave a prayer at the Cross and/or pick one up to pray for someone’s prayer request. You can also leave your prayers for a staff member to pray for you in the box by the doors.
Heavenly Father, You who breathed the spirit of life within me. Draw out of me the light and life you created. Help me to find my way back to you. Help me to use my life to reflect your glory and to serve others as your son Jesus did. We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen
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.

Evangelization Committee - One in Christ, is asking for your prayers. Pray that the Holy Spirit guides us as we go forward in discipleship planning. Thank you!
