"What is needed today is a church which knows how to respond to the expectations of young people." At the heart of youth ministry is our human need for significant relationships.
Music is a means of liturgical expression as old as liturgy itself. Cultures use the language of music to express universal emotions and ideas; our church uses music as the universal language of the soul calling out to God in praise, gratitude, glory, petition, and apology.
St. Francis Xavier offers numerous ministries opportunities to engage and involve parishioners, and ministries that reach out to touch the lives of those in need. We invite you to become active in our parish.
There are many Pastoral Ministry opportunities for individuals that would like to reach out and touch the lives of others in need.
Prayer Line Requests
In our parish we have a large Prayer line with 61 members who are committed to holding the needs of others in prayer.
Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus is the largest fraternal organization in the world. The Knights exemplify 4 principals - charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church, pro-life, families, and vocations.
Health & Wellness
Health and Wellness Ministry focuses on activities that promote wellness and disease prevention. It strives to meet the needs that surface in the faith community around issues of education, prevention and wholistic living.
The Christian Women of St. Francis Xavier provide educational opportunities, leadership preparation, spiritual enrichment, and prayerful support for the women of our parish.
Food Shelf Ministry
The demand on our local food shelves is greater than ever. One reason for this is because children are no longer getting subsidized breakfast and lunch at school,
which in turn places a greater strain
on family budgets.
Social Justice Concerns
The Catholic Church teaches us to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with one another and with God. Our parish can be a primary place where we learn to love and care for each other and the world.
