Welcome to St. Francis Xavier Church

Our mission statement

St. Francis Xavier Parish is a Roman Catholic, Jesuit community of faith called together by God to experience Jesus Christ in His Word, in the sacraments of the Church, and in each other.

We, as the body of Christ, joined in Baptism and inspired by the grace of the Holy Spirit, enrich our faith through prayer and worship, spiritual formation, intellectual rigor, diversity of membership, hospitality and fellowship, attention to family life, and concern for social justice.

Guided by the spirituality of St. Ignatius Loyola, we strive to use our many gifts for the greater glory of God.

BLESSING BAGS FOR KC’s HOMELESS: Help Our Youth Help Others During our Youth Lock-In (July 28-29), our young people will assemble blessing bags. Blessing Bags are gallon-size Zip-loc bags to be kept in your car, so when you encounter a person who is experiencing homelessness, you can offer the bag to them. Pope Francis challenges us to never pass up a homeless person without offering them something! We are asking parishioners to donate the following items for the blessing bags: individually wrapped soft granola/cereal/breakfast bars, single-package nuts and trail mix, peanut butter-and-crackers, new wash cloths, wet-wipe packets, new white tube socks, foot powder, antibacterial salve, bandages, combs, travel-size toothpaste and lotion, lip balm, toothbrushes, toilet paper, gallon-size and snack-size Zip-loc bags. The bags will also include a note of encouragement (written by our youth) and a card with shelter information. There will be a donation bin in the narthex July 2, 9, and 16. For more information on this project, please contact Mariann McCormally (816-523-5115 x 204 mccormally@sfx-kc.org).  THANK YOU for your support.
