    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.
