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.

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
