Parish Finances


Paycheck Protection Program Loan

St. Francis Xavier Parish did receive a Paycheck Protection Program loan and the decision was approved by the Finance Council. It helped us retain

32 full-time and nearly as many part-time staff members who perform vital roles in our parish and school, such as our teachers, administrators and office staff, program directors and custodians. Additionally, the loans helped ensure financial stability for the families of staff who make many sacrifices to serve our parishes and communities. We are grateful for the program and the consideration given to nonprofits, who are also employers in our community. Please continue to support your parish community and mail your weekly contribution envelopes, or go to our website to make a one-time or recurring donation through automated electronic giving.
