    Do you ever feel that your spouse doesn’t understand you? Perhaps that’s because you’re not communicating in the same language. Why not invest a little time to improving your relationship, and learn about the five love languages, as defined by author Gary Chapman.

    Our presenter is Bill Boomer, MA, director of the diocesan Marriage and Family Ministry Office, who will offer a questionnaire for couples to determine which language they “speak,” as well as some practical advice for translating your loved one’s dialect. Wine and appetizers will be served. Make it a date night! Babysitting is available - be sure to let us know you will use this service (call the parish office, 330-725-4968) so we can plan to entertain your child while you and your spouse enjoy the evening.

    The topic is great for engaged couples, married couples, newlyweds, or even couples who are dating.

    Our event will be held in the church's lower social hall (basement). The evening is free and open to all. Join us!

    Our Mission

    Welcome to St. Francis Xavier Parish

    St. Francis Xavier Parish extends a hand of welcome to all as companions on the journey of faith. We are a Catholic community where diversity, acceptance and participation lead us on our lifelong journey of spiritual growth.

    As Christ’s Eucharistic family, the living presence of the Holy Spirit fires us to embrace our baptismal promises. Vibrant celebrations and faith filled parishioners are central to the communal expression of our love for God and God’s love for us.

    Our educational programs provide for spiritual growth in a friendly, open atmosphere to further develop our minds and souls.

    Opportunities for ministry abound as we live the Gospel through the contribution of our time, talent, and treasure.

    We are all challenged to “Go in Peace to Love and Serve the Lord,” as we are called to share all that we receive.
