At St. Francis Xavier Faith Community, Worship and Sunday Liturgy are the source and summit of our faith experience and is at the heart of who we are as a parish community.
“The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed, at the same time it is the fount from which all the Church’s power flows.”
Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy
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.
Eucharistic Ministers assist in the reverent distribution of the precious Body and Blood of Jesus at all Parish Liturgies.
Greeters are ministers of hospitality. The primary focus of this ministry is to greet the assembly as they enter the facility, greeting them as if they were being welcomed into their own home.
Lectors & Ushers
Lectors proclaim to the assembly the Word of God as found in the Scripture readings of the Mass. Ushers are ministers of hospitality. This ministry wears many hats during a liturgy, from seating the assembly to making sure the assembly is comfortable at all times.
Altar serving is a ministry open to all St. Francis Xavier parishioners who are entering 4th grade or older. It is an opportunity for you to participate in a ministry that was as close to being one of Jesus' Disciples as possible.
