    Interested in Joining Us?

    New to the area, or to St. Francis Xavier Parish? We'd love to meet you at Hospitality Sunday, the first Sunday of most months, in the church basement after the 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and 12 noon Masses. Stop by to pick up your welcome packet and goody bag, meet some parishioners, and get a tour of the campus! Or, stop by the parish office to pick up a packet with the necessary forms. Registering gets you into our database so we can respond more promptly to your needs, puts you on the mailing list for our bi-monthly parish newsletter, makes you "official" for those times that you want to be a godparent or confirmation sponsor, and makes sure you can get the tax deductions for your donations. More importantly, it makes you an official part of our family! We're so glad you're here!

    For more information, please call our office: 330-725-4968.

    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.
