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.

A Prayer for Graduates
Heavenly Father, We ask your blessing upon all those who will graduate this year celebrating with diploma or degree in hand. We thank you for the unique gifts found in each graduate and we pray that they will go forth with knowledge and dreams and creativity that only you can ensure. May they remain ever close to you as they begin a new phase of life and may they be a light to the world as they continue to grow in wisdom, age and grace. Help them to remain strong and make right decisions about their future. Convince them that they have within them what they need to succeed. Touch their hearts with your love that they might live convinced of your presence with them in the Holy Spirit. With pride in their accomplishment, we rejoice with them as we pray in the name of your Son, our Lord. Amen. Congratulations Class of 2021!
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.
